Uh, no, there's no such functionality, but you can call `cygcheck -c'
to see the list of all installed packages.

I'm not sure why it should take seven minutes, but it can take a lot
of time of you installed a lot of DLLs.  It's nothing to worry about,
as long as it works.

Can you try what happens if you stop all Cygwin processes, start a
lone dash.exe and enter "/usr/bin/rebaseall" on the command line?
Does it run and silently exits, or do you see any kind of error message?
