A couple of points:

Firstly, the cygwin FAQ is out of date and docbook2X is also required to build the documentation.

I guess this isn't causing visible failures since, unfortunately, the makefile just ignores any errors while building documentation.

I guess it would be better if this was handled by configuration so documentation build errors were reported if we had determined we could built the documentation.

Secondly, it's only obvious from context that 'cygwin-installer' is copy of cygwin setup pre-installed in your build VM. You might want to consider using 'wget -N' and/or it's normal name here.
