Do you have the current versions 6.1-1.20190727 of terminfo/-extra (and 
other Cygwin packages) installed?

I can't find anything anywhere on my system or the web suggesting a 
source for that. Something you or some script did on your system?

How did you find the links in your 2014 "Missing links" post: from 
cygcheck -c|-s? What were the associated packages?


Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
