   I have a problem with /bin/mkshortcut.exe from the cygutils package.  It was mentioned here

half ago.
   I am considering trying to run it under gdb.  I guess that the shortest way to add debugging
symbols to the executable is to build the entire cygutils package without stripping it.
   Is there a simpler way to add debugging information only to mkshortcut.exe?
What packages are required?

/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/cygutils.README tells you what's needed to build cygutils.

An alternative to building cygutils would be to improve your original problem report so that you might be more likely to get help on this list. For example, you wrote "By running those commands manually, I think the problem is the last, /bin/mkshortcut, line." But you didn't say what happened when you ran that command manually. You also didn't attach the cygcheck output requested at
