I see libintl now both in category and full view. It must have been my error,

Also, the original problem was my fault: using "install", rather than
"reinstall". Though I had a cygwin environment several months old, I wanted to
grab a new copy for burning to cd using the "Download Without Installing"
option. I assumed that it would not check my current installation, since I was
not installing, per se. Using "install", libintl was marked "keep". Changing to
"reinstall" marked it "retrieve".

I still can't explain the behavior difference between the mirrors. That must
have been some kind of pilot error too.

Thanks for the help,
