Only if you want to completely eliminate /usr/i686-pc-cygwin-include.
This will eventually occur when all of the packages stop using it. There
is no need to copy this now unless you want to.

It should be relatively empty now. Eventually it will be completely
empty. There is no need to take any other action unless you want to
free up the empty directories. i686-pc-cygwin/bin still has some files
in it that were not touched by the installation.

No installation from sourceware will put \r\n endings on headers. We
aren't responsible for other packages. If they include header files with
\r\n line endings then the package is broken and you should complain to

I can imagine.

I guess you should read the documentation and voluminous discussions about
textmode vs. binary mode. I am, unfortunately, physically incapable of
explaining this one more time.
