Basically, you need all the utilities to be able to run.
The dependencies are not ?published/explicit/known?
The cygwin developers and list will ONLY provide support for a download
and install of ALL the packages. Any one want to add to this?
I think I remember a thread that discussed that the dependencies among the
would be added to setup functionality in the future (probably waiting
for a volunteer to do this).

After several iterations I was finally able to get the utilities I needed,
only to get an error when starting any of the utilities that "cygwin1.dl
could not be found in the specified path", and indeed, the dll is not
present on my system. I did not load all the utilities, just find
utilities, gawk, grep and sed (and later bash when I found the startup
script needed this). What other utilities do I need to install in order to
get everything I need to run?

Sounds like a bug- post to the list, usually if you say the word "bug"
you will get lots of attention.
