Reworded to mention all of those (although on my XP box, 932, 936, 949,
and 950 were selected by default and shaded to prevent unselecting, only
20932 was missing).  Now in CVS.

+<para>Another problem you might encounter is that older versions of
+Windows did not install all charsets by default.  If you are running
+Windows XP or older, you can open the "Regional and Language Options"
+portion of the Control Panel, select the "Advanced" tab, and select
+entries from the "Code page conversion tables" list.  The following
+entries are useful to cygwin: 932/SJIS, 936/EUC-KR, 949/GBK, 950/Big5,
