I think the odd naming is a legacy thing, I'm not sure why they don't
follow the standard "foo/libfoo/foo-devel" convention.

The search string is actually a regular expression. So if you use
"db.h" that really means "d followed by b followed by any character
followed by h, anywhere in the whole package description and file
list." You can narrow down the results by using "/db\.h$" which anchors
And cygcheck -p is new as of .19 so it's probably not well known.
