Well a program not programmed with AI in mind isn't going to ever know
the difference.  The importance here is a reader reading the
setup.hint files.  The fix for this particular issue is for the
cygutils' (or any other package's) setup.hint file to be changed to
use the correct package.  I'm not advocating a new keyword.
