I do not think you have to compile your own fltk. I have gcc-3.3.3 and fltk 1.1.4 installed on cygwin. both are binaries installed using the cygwin installer - I did not compile anything from source. I have no problem with the fltk package -- octplot is compiled using g++-3.3.3 and linked against fltk and works without problem.

I do agree that it is very annoying that the cygwin installer tries to upgrade gcc every time. Well, you know, it's just one more of the many little annoyances we have to endure in this life ...
