Good :)  I didn't know if others would find it useful.  It's in the
debian distro.

I know.  But I couldn't figure out the Method 2 script to get this to
work :(

gcc and make (for sure :) are only required to build it.  I don't believe
this makes them dependencies.  As for the others; I ran a cygcheck -v
pwgen and the cygwin dll was the only thing listed.  I google'd for ages
and couldn't find a method of finding out dependencies and I'm not that
familiar with the code.  If anyone can help tell me _how_ to work out
dependancies I'll be happy to add them.
