Even if I slightly compress the command line created that way by using a
single "-P" option  followed by the  string of  comma separated  package
names, I end up with a command line consisting of some 16700 characters!
I'm not at  all sure how Windows  and/or "setup-x86*.exe" would react to

My W7 64bit had no complain for 23004 byte line


Besides,  since "cygcheck" apparently  finds the relevant information in
some file, and "setup-x86*.exe"  apparently finds the relevant informat-
ion in some file, too,  it would perhaps  be way easier to  just provide
the correct file in the correct location on the new machine.

Any ideas along these lines, anybody?
