That probably means that these libraries weren't installed with 
setup.exe, or something in /etc/setup is corrupted.  Otherwise "cygcheck 
-f" would find these (as it does on my system).

OTOH, it's probably not a bad idea for cygport deps to return the DLL 
name itself if a corresponding package isn't found.  This has occurred 
to me before, I just haven't got around to doing anything about it.
