  All cygwin packages come with self-contained sources installable through
setup.exe.  Although they depend on the headers and libs from the DLL there
are no patches there for them; the patches (if any) are distributed along with
the upstream source tarball in the related source package.

  Also, next time you aren't sure what package contains a given exe:

  Also, we're veering dangerously on topic here.... quickly, someone do or say
something stupid!
