mtrace and mcheck.h in Cygwin


I'm building a program in C using GCC under Cygwin.  I appear to have a memory
leak somewhere in my program, so I want to use the memory allocation debugging
that's part of the GNU C library.  

This involves including the mcheck.h header file in the source, and using the
mtrace command.  It is better explained in the GNU C Library documentation here
(sorry for the URL being broken into two lines):

However, I can't seem to find either the header file or the mtrace command.  I
don't know if I'm missing a package or what.  

There was a post four years ago about the subject (Again, my apologies for this
URL being broken onto two lines):
The answer then seemed to be that the mtrace/mcheck.h utility does not exist in
Cygwin.  I'm curious if that's still the case four years later.

What follows the list of packages I have currently installed, if it's of any
