I'm sure he is -- he replied to a message on cygwin-apps the other day.

Interesting.  I also seem to have cygdpstk-1.dll on my system, but
cygcheck -f /usr/X11R6/bin/cygdpstk-1.dll returns nothing.

I know a new release of the X packages has been built since we've lost the
X maintainer, and a few patches have been omitted from it (in particular,
one that fixed building font directories on text mounts).  It's probably a
matter of getting a new X maintainer and having him or her rebuild the
package yet again to also include cygdpstk-1.dll.

I doubt there's anything the GraphicsMagick maintainer can do, considering
the dependency.
