No, no. I'm sorry. I must not be expressing myself very well.
cygwin is the only actual requirement that we omit from listing
explicitly, since EVERYTHING depends on cygwin, and setup.exe knows that.
My original statement should have said:
Oddly, my build doesn't appear to depend on zlib0[. It does, however,
depend on] libgcc1 and libintl8 (and [it also depends on] cygwin, of
course, but that is never included in requires:).
So, IF your binaries are like mine, and do not depend on zlib (but do
depend on the other three packages), then your requirement line should read:
requires: libintl8 libgcc1
