Depends on what you have installed. I'd have to watch:

- ezwinports, obviously. :-)

- Emacs - depends on who is currently providing a binary, switches
  pretty much every year.

- MinGW/MSys

- GNUWin32


- GnuPG

- Mercurial

- Python, Ruby: respective homepages

- GNU Global

- Exuberant Ctags

- Windows-only-but-free stuff like Clink, ConEmu, Putty/Plink

That's just off the top of my head, I'm sure there's more. Obviously, I
don't check all those regularly, only when I see the need, but that's
not a good solution.
