This list only supports Cygwin packages that you get from the cygwin.com
site and its mirrors. The above is from a third party, so you need to
take it up with them if you have problems.

'make' is not installed by default, you have to select it. From the
cygwin.com home page:
"Note also that, by default, setup.exe does not install everything. Only
the base cygwin distribution is installed by default. When running
setup.exe, clicking on categories and packages in the package
installation screen will provide you with the ability to control what is
installed or updated."
