It turns out this was user error, not a problem with Cygwin. He had
umount-ed /usr/lib immediately after installing Cygwin, because it
'seemed a little odd' to him. So of course man didn't work.
I was thoroughly confused by his explanation in the email I cc'd to
this list. I thought he had *fixed* the problem by umount-ing
/usr/lib, which of course made no sense to me at all!
Sheesh. Glad that's sorted.
