Some more infos for this release, which will be in the next Cygwin README:

There are two CPAN releases in this package. The default CPAN version is
the stable 1.76_02 version, which belongs to the 5.8.8 package.
If you want to update it to the current CPAN version it is easier for 
newbies to disable the standard CPAN package, the new vendor package is 
taken then.

   mv /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/CPAN.pm /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/CPAN.pm_

Otherwise you'll have to go the tedious CPAN upgrade process for which 
the old CPAN without Win32API::File was not ready then. Cannot overwrite 
locked dll's,m within the CPAN shell. See the various Linda W threads on 
p5p for example.
