Updated parrot and rakudo releases for cygwin

I've updated the cygwin packages for parrot, rakudo and rakudo-star for cygwin.

There were a couple of test failures and changes.

See the patches and build specs here:
http://code.google.com/p/cygwin-rurban/source/list
and bugs here:

rakudo-star make test is broken. You'd need to install it first, and then you can successfully test it.

nqp had three versions floating around: an old parrot-nqp needed for bootstrapping rakudo, rakudo's nqp-201204 and rakudo star needs an updated 201204.1 version as /usr/bin/nqp. Use /usr/bin/nqp.
