Cygwin install is broken v-a-vis dependencies

Whenever I go to install a package, I get a list
of 50 other packages that it claims need to be installed.
I know that list is both bogus and contains items I explicitly
need to not oinstall (e.g. cmake). What is worse, when I want to
uninstall a package, it gives me that ]same list plus it wants
to install the package I am trying ot uninstall. This just broken.
