That's the only way I've ever installed cygwin. I have rerun and
rerun and rerun setup ... more than a half dozen times just this
go around ... dozens and dozens of times on various machines over
the last few years. Every single install I recall has missed something.
It's always been a matter of how much annoyance I could tolerate.
An absence of grep far exceeds the limit - and so I make inquiry.
Following the instructions on that web page Larry gave me, I've completely
eradicated cygwin from my machine and begun the reinstall (30% complete).
I should know very shortly whether this will work.
Also, it turns out there was indeed a cygwin1.dll loaded with xgobi
(an app I only used a short while and then forgot about).
