/usr/lib and /usr/bin are aliases for /bin and /lib created using mountpoints.
If you look in a cmd.exe shell or explorer, there shouldn't be anything in the
bin or lib directory[*] in C:\cygwin\usr (or whereever you installed), in fact
they don't really even need to exist.
[*] - In fact it would be bad if anything was there because it would be hidden
by the mountpoint shadowing the real directory.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
