I've been meaning to take a look at fixing this myself, because I'm
tired of:

$ cd /usr/bin

$ cygcheck ./ls
.\.\.\.\ - Cannot open

$ cygcheck ls
 - Cannot open
Error: could not find ls

$ cygcheck ls.exe
 - Cannot open
Error: could not find ls.exe

$ cygcheck ./ls.exe
.\ls.exe
  .\cygwin1.dll
    C:\WINXP\system32\ADVAPI32.DLL
      C:\WINXP\system32\ntdll.dll
      C:\WINXP\system32\KERNEL32.dll
      C:\WINXP\system32\RPCRT4.dll
  .\cygintl-8.dll
    .\cygiconv-2.dll
