I did find a cygwin release, in a local mirror ftp site, which
contains Emacs-21.2-7 of both its source and pre-complied
binaries. The cygwin as a whole can be net-installed by a setup.exe,
though the default options are set to exclude the Emacs.

You may check it by visiting the wet site of RedHat.
