Hang on. Of course base-cygwin requires bash *and* coreutils since it
calls cat, mkdir and rm.
The setup.hint file of base-cygwin has a
requires: bash coreutils
line. That's a recursion. Won't the order in which the postinstall
files are running be pure coincidence?
Shouldn't the requires line be removed in base-cygwin to get this
working reliably?!? Geeh, I'm getting headaches.
