Doh! That's it, yes. I don't know how that happened. But it did.

BTW, though I've not seen it yet, this sort of dependency lookup
problem can bite you on, for example, Solaris 8, where the link paths
can reference $ORIGIN (the directory whence the binary came), as in

Now I have a different problem:

$ cd /usr/local
$ ls
etc include info lib libexec man sbin
$ ls -d bin

And I can't remove /usr/local/bin/cygwin1.dll.

I think I'm headed for a complete reinstall here.
