  I'm sure there was an error code set in the $? shell variable, but we do
have a reporting issue there that bash doesn't always issue a message when a
process fails with an error status.

  Yeh, this is a limitation of cygcheck; it only checks if the named DLLs are
present, not if they have all the necessary imports that the executable
actually requires.  It /could/ be added to cygcheck but would need a good deal
of extra code to be written by someone.
