I want to report that (in a certain scenario), I managed to install
Cygwin (32 bit) successfully. All I needed was (some luck, see (C)
below) and 2 fixes (see (C) and (D) below).
(A) Download full cygwin (with obsolete packages hidded, and — if it
asked [I do not remember] — agreeing on requiring obsolete stuff) in Summer 2015.
(B) Install all but the Debug category (agreeing on required obsolete stuff)
— this would not succeed (many postinstall scripts failed).

(this may have been already changed; the above scenario
gives no info about this);
(2) postinstall/x3270.sh needs an extra line, mkdir'ing the

cygwin: install does not succeed any more (I would report this
