How about a few extra checkbox items on the "Cygwin Setup - Create
"Cygwin Setup - Finish
Have setup create icons for easy access to the Cygwin environment.
[ ] Create icon on _Desktop
[ ] Add icon to _Start Menu
Optional tasks - (may take many minutes!)
[ ] Build database (makewhatis) of man page short descriptions for
'whatis' & 'apropos'.
[ ] Build database (updatedb) of file names for 'locate'.
Display README information at exit.
[ ] Display /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/ directory of README files.
