Attached is an experimental patch which adds -m, 
--check-mtimes[=SECONDS] option to cygcheck. It provides an IMO useful 
heuristics to find files possibly modified after installation.

"cygcheck -c -m" prints the number of files with st_mtime > 
INSTALL_TIME+SECONDS. INSTALL_TIME is the st_mtime of the 
/etc/setup/PACKAGE.lst.gz file.

With -v, the affected path names are printed. The optional parameter 
SECONDS defaults to 600 to hide files modified by postinstall scripts.

Documentation update and changelog entry are still missing.
