Btw, while I don't mind an occasional foray into discussing other
packages here, this "cygjpeg-62.dll" problem is exactly the kind of
discussion that I do not want to see proliferate.

We go to some effort trying to get the packages in the cygwin
distribution right, with proper dependencies and proper packaging.
However, we have no power to fix these kinds of problems in other
product distributions and I don't want to see the cygwin lists getting
bogged down with attempts to fix problems over which we have no control.
