You could have the purge script remove the files from the .lst manifest,
so that cygcheck doesn't complain about missing files.  Or, it could
just "cp /dev/null" on top of them to reset their size to 0 bytes
(though I don't know if that would do weird things if you set LANG to
one of the purged locales and then ran the program.)
