Run "cygcheck yourprog.exe".  This should show you all the DLLs that your
program expects to find at runtime.

It is generally recommended that you use setup.exe to install Cygwin on
the machines you'll be running Cygwin programs on, rather than copy the
files by hand.  If you feel adventurous, you could try compiling your
program using MinGW, by adding a "-mno-cygwin" flag to gcc, but be aware
that you won't be getting full POSIX emulation (in particular, if your
program uses shared memory, you'll *have* to use Cygwin, AFAIK).
