cygcheck is your friend.  "cygcheck bash.exe", on bash-3.0-x for
example, explicitly lists cygreadline6.dll in the dependency list.

libreadline6-5.0-2, confirming that it was indeed libreadline6.

Also, if you based your build on the generic-build-script, then after
you have executed the install step (but before the finish step),
"<pkg>-<ver>-<rel>.sh depend" will nicely list all your dependencies.
