Not anymore.  :-)

I've been asking for someone to change this for a while but I finally
decided to do this myself.

I'm adding package checking to cygcheck.exe right now.  I wanted to get
a more intelligent version of cygcheck.exe released for cygwin 1.3.5.
Changing cygcheck to a mingw application has obvious benefits and I'd
been meaning to add some crude package handling to it for a while.

It was sort of a proof-of-concept type of thing but it works ok
for a version 1.

The only problem is that I had to pull a lot of code out of setup.exe.

I think we need a "libutils" directory or something that will allow the
sharing of setup's version handling, filename parsing, and mount table
handling.

The mount table stuff is almost good enough now for inclusion in a
cygwin-lite type of package that was mentioned in the cygwin mailing
list a while ago.
