That is all fine and dandy if you know where to look.  A new user isn't
going to have a clue and I hadn't dealt with configuring cygwin in over a year,
so I promptly forgot.

So, new users are going to rely on the on-line documentation.  In this
case there is nothing.  Would be be that difficult to document the
configuration of programs like this on line?  The web page did say that the
user doc is comprehensive and it isn't.  And, the FAQ is meant for queries
like this and it too has nothing.

I think it is a suggest well worth looking into.
