Actually, I don't have an idea if this is a valid procedure.  And to
be honest, at this moment I don't even care.

But today I ran into the same problem - and your trick just works for
me, too.

Many many thanks for posting this workaround.  I guess it took you
some hours to detect libncurses7 as a key component, but you certainly
saved me the pain to try to re-install all cygwin.
