Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] New on sourceware: cygutils-0.9.7-1

I used setup to download the latest files and this cygutils was 
included.  When I ran setup to install the files, I selected "Skip" for 
this particular package.  Each time I run Setup, I still have to click 
"Skip" for the cygutils package.  Is there a way to make Setup always skip 
this package along with the numerous other pakcages I choose not to 
install?  And please don't tell me, "Install everything" because I don't 
want to do that.
