That should now be fixed.  Sorry that I couldn't respond earlier.  It's
been a day of many meetings.

I've updated the http://cygwin.com/setup.html page.

The "System Environment/Daemons" was a holdover from before the use of shorter
names.  I've changed squid and openssl to use the newer names.

>Ditto with 'Graphics Libs', 'Devel Libs' && 'Libs Text'

I don't see any reason to avoid putting the package in two categories if it
is appropriate.  It is "Graphics" and "Libs" not "Graphics Libs'.
