        Recently, i have encountered the need to check the validity of the
        default utilities that installed with cygwin  (like grep, find ,etc.)
        and i am wondering if is there a way to obtain and compare md5
        checksum for all of these utilities.

    setup*.exe verifies packages' md5sums against a gpg-signed listing
(setup.ini) before     installing.

 Thanks for your replay. Where could i find setup.ini file?
I didn't find it in the program folders tree nor in the setup exe itself.
