Since the cygwin package provides some info files, shouldn't its
"requires" line in setup-2.ini include _update-info-dir?
Unfortunately, the cygwin package (at least in 1.7.0-58) also provides a
very minimal /usr/share/info/dir, so the failure to run
/etc/postinstall/update-info-dir.sh means that /usr/share/info/dir gets
more-or-less obliterated after cygwin is updated.
BTW, in the course of trying to figure out what happened to
/usr/share/info/dir, I noticed what I think is a packaging bug: Both
cygwin and cygwin-doc provide /usr/share/info/libc.info and
