The GNOME 1.4 libraries were added to the distro in 2005 for the benefit 
of GNOME programs that had yet to be ported to the then relatively-new 
GNOME 2.x.  Going on five years later, GNOME 3.0 is around the corner, 
and development of the last known GNOME 1.4-based holdout was finally 
stopped last year.  These packages are completely obsolete, should no 
longer be used, and have therefore been removed from the distro.

If you previously installed these packages, they will remain installed 
on your system until you uninstall them, which I recommend you do ASAP. 
  After getting the latest setup.ini from cygwin.com, they will all be 
shown in the Misc category.
