cygutils depends on obsolete libpopt0 package

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
