Someone with a full Cygwin install could run

find . -name '*.exe' | xargs cygcheck | sed -e '/\.exe/d' -e 's,\\,/,g' | sort -bu | xargs -n1 cygpath -u | xargs cygcheck -f

from the .inst directory, which would get the list of library packages the
DLLs reside in.  It's a short step from there to the setup.hint dependence
list (I plan to use a similar command eventually in the automatic ITP
check script).
