*cringe* - wonder how I missed that.

I wonder if the generic build script could lint setup.hint files based on
cygcheck output - 
And as I say that I discover (courtesy of cygcheck) that the system I built
the updated packages on doesn't even have libdb4.2 installed on it, and
hence undoubtedly the packages are dependent on libdb4.1 (and indeed they
are) - My connection is running Very slow so it'll be a 'little while'
before I can update this system so I can fix this bug.

Guess -2 will be a little bit sooner then I expected.

As a short-term patch maybe someone could change the requires field from
libdb4.2 to libdb4.1?
