That much I believe and have changed in the new release of -bin. I also
moved most of the requirements that were specific to -bin from -base to
-bin. There probably remains some work to be done on this.

I'll need a more thorough investigation before I touch these. I wasn't
able to find anything using libintl* at all during my initial
investigation, but I would appreciate it if you would look into it
further and tell us what your method was (e.g. run cygpath against *.exe
and *.dll in the bin package and report which of the three are
referenced and which are not). Same for gettext... I thought there was
a script or something that used it and people were complaining a long
time ago that it wasn't being installed automatically. Search the
mailing list archives, it is probably one of the only messages

Again, fixed libncurses, but leaving the others alone unless we change them.
You know, now that the source packages are available, feel free to send
me a comprehensive patch against the *.hint files that fixes this
properly. It is difficult when someone asks me to make one change
because it often ends up requiring that I change several .hint files.
So, if you would like it to be improved, then put the time into doing
the job right and send me the diff... otherwise I am likely to keep
screwing it up as I make little changes.
