Package Version Status
Missing file: /etc/Muttrc.setupnew from package mutt
Missing file: /etc/mime.types.setupnew from package mutt
mutt 1.5.20-1 Incomplete

Does this mean there is a 'mutt' packaging problem or ???

Check the postinstall script in /etc/postinstall ( It might move these files which will make cygcheck think they are missing.

The only entry in '/etc/postinstall' related to 'mutt' is '' which, if I understand things correctly, means that mutt was installed ok.

I did a search on my entire cygwin installation and could not find
either of the two missing files. The only place I can find them
referenced is in 'mutt.lst.gz', which is just what 'cygcheck' uses to
determine that 'mutt' is incomplete.

whoops! I reread your email and realized I didn't answer the question you were getting at. Here is what '' contains:

#!/bin/sh backup_maybe() { if ! [ -e $1 ] || ! diff -q $1 $1.setupnew >/dev/null 2>&1; then mv -f $1 $1.old 2>/dev/null mv -f $1.setupnew $1 2>/dev/null else rm -f $1.setupnew fi } backup_maybe /etc/Muttrc backup_maybe /etc/mime.types
