This is very much not a supported method for installing packages. You
are really just confusing a very simple issue by even bringing this up.
The way to install packages for cygwin is via "setup.exe". If you don't
see a package 2 microseconds after someone sends an announcement to
cygwin-announce then... WAIT FOR IT.
