I have TexLive in at least one of my Cygwin setups even though I
didn't request it. Something else depends on it.

Why do you select the entire "Text" group? I would guess that the
reason is, your usage is different from mine. I don't select by
groups, I try to pick the things I need and they drag in the things
that they think they need. Have you ever tried to just pick the things
you want and let setup pick the things they need?

I think TexLive snuck in on me by this means. It's possible that even
if you took a "surgical" approach to the Text group you'd end up with
TexLive anyway.
