No problem for me.
Please note that cyglcms2-2.dll is a indirect dependency of
convert so you may need to reinstall libgs9 and libMagickCore6_2
$ cygcheck convert
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cyglcms2-2.dll
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cyggs-9.dll
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll

please also note that there is a system utility called in the same way
so be sure to have cygwin /usr/bin directory in the PATH
before any system one.
