directories needed to make Cygwin portable

I want to run Cygwin (to run ddrescue, among other things) on WinPE.
Which folders do I need from the Cygwin installation copied over.
Someone mentioned just the cygwin1.dll, but apparently that's not
enough. I tried the bin folder and ddrescue didn't throw any errors,
off the bat. What about the dev, etc, home, and lib folders. Do I need
them too?
