Ok. That will mean that you need to subscribe to the cygwin mailing
list to look for problem reports and you'll need to also be reading this
mailing list for any issues that affect package maintainers.
The setup.hint file that you've provided doesn't need a Requires: cygwin
because that is assumed. It would also be unusual if it didn't rely on
anything other than cygwin.
I can't check the binary tarball because:
% bzip2 -tvv cabextract-1.3-1.tar.bz2
[1: huff+mtf rt+rld]data integrity (CRC) error in data
You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.
It looks like it is corrupted.
