BLUF:  either the new make package needs cygltdl-7 as one of its
dependencies, or Guile does, so that setup.exe can Do The Right Thing.

I updated to make-4.1-1 and the executable immediately broke:

$ make --version
/usr/bin/make.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Poked the current cygcheck at it:
$ cygcheck /usr/bin/make.exe

cygcheck: track_down: could not find cygltdl-7.dll

I brought up setup.exe, found cygltdl-7 (which was not previously
installed), installed 2.4.6-1, and now all is well:

    C:\cygwin\bin\cygltdl-7.dll

The indentation would seem to indicate that cygltdl-7 is needed by
cygguile-17 and not by make.exe directly.  This fits with what little
I know about Guile, however I did not have time to pursue the problem
any further, as I needed to go back to my original task (the one for
which I was running make).  So if/when the cygguile package is rebuilt
next time, this may all solve itself; for now this message is just an
FYI for future google users wondering why setup.exe isn't magically
doing a transitive closure.  :-)

Thanks to everyone involved!
