Re: Why does ldd not show cyg*.dll in its output?

Expected output:

According to Microsoftâs Dependency Walker tool, the output should also list
cygwin1.dll and cygintl-8.dll, at minimum.  Since it seems happy to chase
dependencies from kernel32.dll to the other two, which are not explicit
dependencies of ls.exe, it should also list cygiconv-2.dll, via cygintl.

See above.

Bonus points if the output changes to a tree view, so the indirect dependencies are clear.

ldd is meant to be compatible with the Linux tool. As Andrey mentioned, use cygcheck instead if you want that layout.
