5) Setup.exe can issue a warning; move such files as
   include/{_G_config.h,termcap.h}, include/X11/*, and lib/termcap.a
   into /usr; and then remove the directory.

I like solution 3. These files, however, are lost by simply
applying this solution. Then we should repackage gdb, termcap,
and gcc without usr/i686-pc-cygwin.
