No package should depend (runtime) on gettext. It's most likely a bug if
it does. Read the announcement or search the archives for the right

If you install with setup.exe and it fails to install a dependent
packages then that's a bug too. If you selectively download some
packages and don't observe their dependencies and it ends bitting you
then _don't_ do that, let setup.exe do it for you.

I don't think there's so much into latest/contrib after all you can't
tell them apart using setup.exe. At least this requirement is not
documented at the cygwin package page
( IIRC this was
discussed in the past and thought a good thing so ncurses was moved to
latest because of this, but that cause some problems. So moving packages
around is avoided now.

Ahh, but there is, and to the right package not gettext 8-)
