I may have found the issue.

It looks like the default in setup.exe is not to download libpcre0.
But the "less" program in the cygwin distribution seems to depend on

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.
