Actually, "cygcheck -cd" will suffice.

If just a "cygcheck -c" is used, cygcheck will also do some rudimentary
integrity checking on the packages (i.e., verifies that all the files are
present).  If a "-v" is given, it will also list the missing files.  Note
that due to a non-standard postinstall procedure, some packages (notably
"apache") *will* show up as incomplete.
