Installation by people who know what they are doing and quietly go about
their business was not what I was referring to.  Again, if someone has
a system that works for them and never shows up here with plaintive questions
about why they get cygintl-2.dll errors, then more power to them.

If you want to start a separate thread discussing the issue of smart
people using something besides setup, feel free.  Just don't reply
directly to my message and act as if you are replying to a point I made
when I didn't make it.

You're disagreeing with me on what I know I'm talking about in a thread
that I started?  How strange.
