I wonder if folks who ask this question fully realize the meaning of
im MingW. The binary for MingW is about 12 megabytes at last glance.
the full package runs many 100's of Megabytes. So a single archive is
untenable. The nature of Cygwin is flexible, so the setup allows you to
just what *you* need. So, there is logic and reason in the way Cygwin does
things. There is logic and reason in the way MingW does things. There is
even logic and reason in the fact that those methods are very different.
