$ ldd /usr/bin/makeinfo.exe 
ntdll.dll => /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/ntdll.dll (0x7c900000)
kernel32.dll => /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/kernel32.dll (0x7c800000)
cygwin1.dll => /usr/bin/cygwin1.dll (0x61000000)
ADVAPI32.DLL => /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/ADVAPI32.DLL (0x77dd0000)
RPCRT4.dll => /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/RPCRT4.dll (0x77e70000)
cygintl-8.dll => /usr/bin/cygintl-8.dll (0x6f5c0000)
cygiconv-2.dll => /usr/bin/cygiconv-2.dll (0x674c0000)

and exactly the same for cygwin-1.5
