Right, but cygcheck can rely on the fact that cygwin1.dll is around, at
least, if necessary.  I guess a goal could be to come up with a generic
library which did sanity checking and corrections on cygwin permissions.

A post-install script doesn't help if someone copied all of their stuff
to a CD-ROM and then to a new system.

We really should improve setup, too, but I still think we need this in
two places.

Maybe we could get by with just having a sanity shell script that could
be run but it still seems like it should be tied into cygcheck somehow.

Or, maybe we need a "cygfix"...

Not at all.
