Sympton of problem:
Running "less" produces a pop-up window error, "The dynamic link library
cygpcre-0.dll could not be found in the specified path." This problem was
also reported by Andrew McVitty on the cygwin mailing list on Oct 8 2003.
What I found:
The llibpcre0 package is not installed when choosing "Download from
Internet" and then "Installing from Local Directory". I chose pair.com as
my mirror site.
