No, but it does require a browser; does installing xdg-utils from Ports help?

Yes, it does help. I haven't completely figured out how to configure my system so that xdg-open will do everything I want, but I've figured out enough to know that it's do-able.

OK, I've got all the Help menu commands working except the one that's supposed to send mail, but that seems to be a cygstart problem. I've just sent a question about this to the cygwin list.

Setting BROWSER=cygstart doesn't help here, because xdg-open receives a `file://' URL, which cygstart doesn't understand.
