That shouldn't happen, but you need to keep in mind that the Cygwin
package is named after the Perl distribution and not the modules these
contain.  You can find out the distribution name via CPAN or metaCPAN
when all you have is a module name.

If anything, cygport finds too many dependencies, in particular with
Perl and similar scripting languages.  It has no way of knowing if the
invocation of a module is in fact guarded and entirely optional.  But
I'm sure that in a few cases the heuristics that are used might fail the
other way, too.
