Due to NT's file system cache, I don't believe the above to be an issue.
I actually have to "flush the cache" between cygcheck runs, otherwise
subsequent runs are *much* faster:
$ time cygcheck -c >/dev/null
Of course, the latest version has eliminated the cost of forking gzip
once for every package file.

I don't know. I have the following:
$ cygcheck -c | wc -l
