According to the 32-bit setup.ini I've just downloaded, the cygutils
package has a single dependency: libpopt0. However libpopt0 is marked
as an obsolete package.
Can we either reinstate libpopt0 to full package status, so it appears
in the regular setup-x86 package lists, or switch cygutils to depend on
whatever replaced libpopt0 (which I think is popt)?
I haven't checked whether the same problem also affects 64-bit builds.
In case it's a mirror problem, I picked up my setup.ini from
Relevant extracts from the setup.ini below:
sdesc: "A collection of simple utilities (core collection)"
ldesc: "A collection of simple (single source file) utilities,
including: lpr, banner, dump (no, not the ext2 backup utility; it's
a hexdumper), Windows clipboard manipulation programs, and many
sdesc: "Obsolete libpopt library"
