When I try to run cmake, I get the following error message:

I found online that the solution was run "cygcheck cmake" and see if there are missing dll files. It does say cyglz4_1.dll is missing.If there is any other reason why running cmake gives the above error message, I'ld be happy to implement the solution/fix.
Thanks in advanceVijaya

The dependency on liblz4 exists, so setup should have installed this package.

It might be worthwhile looking at /var/log/setup to see if there are any indications of why this didn't happen.

Perhaps setup has bugs? :)

The real question is:  Why does cmake not require liblz4_1 if it depends
on it?  That is the most likely reason why the package wasn't installed
to begin with and hence an update wouldn't do anything about it.

The dependency is cmake -> libarchive13 -> liblz4_1
