Setup shows ? instead of size for some packages

Call me slow to notice but I'm seeing more packages appearing with size ? mark in the "View" window when I run cygwin setup. Also, I notice that most, if not all the packages, seem to be related to source or libraries. I've read the setup documentation, googled, and searched the mail list but can't seem to find as answer as to what's behind it.

Would someone in the know please tell me what causes it, what it means, and is it a problem?

Some of the entries I see are:

        skip Gnome     ?  atk 1.0: Acc. Toolkit library (sources)
        skip   Libs    ?  boost: Boost C++ libraries (source)
        Skip   X11     ?  cairo: Cross-dev. vec. grap. lib.(source)
1.0-2   Keep   Misc    ?  clear
1.2.0-1 Keep   Misc    ?  d
        Skip   Gnome   ?  dbus-glib: Freedsktp msg bus sys. (source)
        Skip   Devel,L.?  eventlog: Structured event logging library
        Skip   X11     ?  fltk_gdi: Fst Lgt Toolkit-GDI ver.(sources)
