My feelings exactly.
You can download the find-utils source package from a CygWin mirror,
compile and install it, and then you'll have updatedb.
However I would prefer slocate. Case-insensitive searches are a must on
Windows, and regexp searches are also a (very) nice bonus.
Unfortunately slocate-2.5 doesn't build OOTB. I've made it work and
mailed my changes to slocate maintainer a couple of weeks ago, but so
far received no reply.
