Weird stuff with 'man' and 'tset' programs

Something weird is going on with my cygwin.  I first
noticed it when I ran 'vim' and it said that it did
not recognize a terminal type of 'cygwin'.  Ok, so I
set the TERM environment to "ansi".  That seemed to
work, but I noticed that the arrow keys to move around
with did not work.  So then I went and reset the
terminal by using the command 'tset'.  This came back
and said that it did not recognized a terminal of
cygwin, or ansi, or anything else.  I checked my files
and I have ncurses and terminfo installed, and the
files for the various terminal definitions are in
'/usr/lib/terminfo' right where they are supposed to

Then I went to see what the man pages said about this.
 The man program worked, but it comes back and says
"No manual entry for tset", or for any programs.  I
made sure that I had a good MANPATH, and exported it. 
Did not help.  I have a valid '/' file,
and if I start man with the -d option, it echoes out
the paths as listed in the '/' file. 
Even when I specify the man path directory by using
'man -M /usr/man man
', it still says it can not find the man page.

My PATH works fine, but who knows what else does not
really work.

I could really use a little help with this problem.

I am running Win 2k all of the cygwin programs are up
to date.  My shell is bash.  Below is the out put from
'cygcheck -s'.
