What is a working Cygwin install? If you leave out a package, the
programs in that package won't be available, eg:
> [Base Packages]
> bash: The GNU Bourne Again SHell
leave out bash: you don't get bash.
> diffutils: A GNU collection of diff utilities
leave out diffutils: you don't get diff, patch.
> findutils: Utilities for finding files--find, xargs, and locate
leave out findutils: you don't get find.
Dependencies of a package are automatically selected/shown when you
[re]select to install that package.
I don't consider Cygwin without bash or find a 'working Cygwin
install', but YMMV.
