Most setup.hint's do explicitly require cygwin.

Specifically, 423 requires lines include cygwin whereas 121 do not.

setup.exe doesn't special case the name 'cygwin' at all, so it seems 
appropriate to explicitly depend on cygwin for any packages which contain 
binaries - though I'll admit that the occasional missing dependency on 
cygwin isn't going to cause any actual brokenness.
