I guess I don't understand why you thoink you'd need two installations
for two build environments.

You do what?

Yes, how about not switching at all?  As long as you keep the PATH clean
so that these installations don't see each other there is no problem
having multiple versions of Cygwin active on the same machine.  If you
have daemons running then of course you need to set them up to use
different ports on each instance as well.
