In another message, procps was mentioned*, and I tried to see what package it 
was in using cygcheck, but cygcheck didn't return anything. Wondering 
what is wrong...

$ type procps
procps is hashed (/usr/bin/procps)
$ procps --version
procps version 3.2.8
$ cygcheck --help
Usage: <snip/>
       cygcheck -f FILE [FILE]...
  -f, --find-package   find the package to which FILE belongs
$ which procps
$ cygcheck -f `which procps`
$ cygcheck -f `which cat`
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 COR900GFY5 2.4.1(0.293/5/3) 2016-01-24 11:26 x86_64 Cygwin

So, cygcheck does find cat's package, but not procps's.
