Thanks, but the problem remains. MB-System (the software I try to install) complains about rpc/:

checking rpc/rpc.h usability... no
checking rpc/rpc.h presence... no
checking for rpc/rpc.h... no
checking rpc/types.h usability... no
checking rpc/types.h presence... no
checking for rpc/types.h... no
configure: error: Required header <rpc/types.h> not found, check include path and intsalled devel packages

I always knew that I must reinstall all software (those that don't come 
with cygwin by default, e.g., PostGIS) after upgrading to the latest cygwin version (ie.
download the latest setup*.exe and perform the upgrade). I just found these steps:

chmod +x apt-cyg
mv apt-cyg /usr/local/bin/
apt-cyg install PACKAGE-NAME-HERE

would these steps correctly update specific packages?

Thanks again,
