It turns out this was user error, not a problem with Cygwin.  He had
umount-ed /usr/lib immediately after installing Cygwin, because it
'seemed a little odd' to him.  So of course man didn't work.

I was thoroughly confused by his explanation in the email I cc'd to
this list.  I thought he had *fixed* the problem by umount-ing
/usr/lib, which of course made no sense to me at all!

Sheesh.  Glad that's sorted.
