That was last updated 5 years ago, and most of the activity ended 7
years ago.  Also, I see MSYS DLLs there, which tells me some of the
programs are MSYS ports, not native Windows ports (MSYS is a fork of
Cygwin which I use only to build native Windows programs using MinGW

Most of the tools there are available from GnuWin32, from MinGW, or
from ezwinports, the latter two are more up to date.
