  All that detail, but no cygcheck.out.  Sigh.

  It'd be worth a) checking if any postinstall scripts didn't complete (re-run any that don't have .done on the end) b) re-running
setup and just clicking right through so it'll pick up any dependencies it might have missed first time round c) attaching your
cygcheck.out when you post with a problem ...

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
