On the main Cygwin web page, to the left side there is a link to "Search
Packages".  If you click that link and in the resulting search dialog put
"/line.exe$" (that's a regular expression) you'll find that line.exe is in the
util-linux package.  Run setup.exe and install that package.  Or if it is
already installed, reinstall it.  I don't know which package it used to be in
your prior installation.
