Right. This may be the most important piece of information. That and
/var/log/setup.log*. If 'make' isn't shown as a package being installed,
you don't have it. Of course, the output of 'cygcheck -srv' will tell you
whether 'make' was installed but if it isn't, the log files will tell
you if it was supposed to be installed from what you picked. If it's not
installed and the log doesn't tell you it was supposed to be, you need to
check to see if the mirror(s) you picked have the package. There are
occasions where some mirrors are incomplete. See
<http://cygwin.com/packages/> to find the package which contains 'make' if
you're not sure what it is. If the mirror you're using has the package,
make sure you do select it when you install via setup. If the mirror
doesn't have the package, add another mirror to your list of mirrors
until you find one that does have the package.
