Good to know, but hard to tell with no responses.  Thank you for helping out.

As you can see, I get a return code of 127 (file not found) and the icon-
theme.cache is not created; yet there is no message from gtk-update-icon-cache 
indicating a problem.  I am running the command line as the "Brian S. Wilson" 
administrative account.  I've also attached the the cygcheck.out file again.

I've run the command "/usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache -v 
/usr/share/icons/hicolor" and again received a 127 error code, but nothing on 
the screen to indicate a problem.  I've verified that I can change directory 
to the /usr/share/icons/(hicolor|gnome)directories and created and deleted a 
"junk" file so it doesn't seem to be a directory permissions issue with 
creating files.  I have also traversed the subdirectories and verified each 
subdirectory and file is at least readable by everyone.  It just looks like 
the gtk-update-icon-cache command isn't working and isn't printing an error 
message for what is wrong.  I did notice that there are symbolic links for 
some of the file entries and was wondering if this would cause issues (perhaps 
gtk-update-icon-cache doesn't like symbolic links)?

Please let me know if there is something else I can do to help debug this 
issue.

I didn't know if the corrupt Perl manpage issue was related in my previous 
post.  I was wondering if the local copy of gtk-update-icon-cache could be 
corrupted as well, but I thought it odd that even when I had deleted the Perl 
manpages, I still couldn't download from the GT website and had to go to the 
VT website to get a good package.
