Yes, the preremove scripts should also be logged to setup.log.full.
I'm not sure I understand the above, though - was the preremove script
logged or wasn't it?  The gcc-mingw preremove script's output should
be the following one line: "*** Removing gcc-mingw files.  Please wait. ***"
and should be preceded by "running: C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe -c

You're welcome to send me the resulting setup.log.full off-list if you're
unsure whether the logging worked.

This is fine.  It is renamed.  But remember, you're *reinstalling* the
package.  The newly installed copy of the package will again contain a
/etc/preremove/ :-)
