    Winchain was the prebuilt toolchain for the 1.x platform. It was installed by those who couldn't install the real toolchain manually. It was built by an outcasted iPhone dev who later turned his site into a spam site anyway. (lulz)

    It really takes very little knowledge to build it yourself. If you have the necessary tools (subversion, git, etc) and some terminal (terminal, cygwin, etc), and you can copy and paste, then you can basically build the toolchain.

    He nearly makes it for you.
