  Heh, that's true, although there is a handy trick for the package search:
since cygwin runs on windows, all executables use the ".exe" ending in cygwin
packages.  Compare:

Cygwin Package List
Search Results
Found 755 matches for as.

Cygwin Package List
Search Results
Found 8 matches for as.exe.

  And the answer is that as is the GNU assembler, and it is part of the
binutils package, which lives under the 'Devel' category in setup.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
