Apparently, the PDFMerge program uses its own min-cygwin distribution.
You probably want to contact them to find out how they expect you to
deal with this problem since it isn't really something that we are
familiar with here, other than to advise that you redo your installation
and use c:\cygwin as the root rather than letting setup.exe use the
existing root set up by PDFMerge.

If anyone is interested, they might want to inquire at for source code for all of the
binaries that are being released under the GPL.  I don't see any source
code at the site but I didn't look too closely.
