Hello, Marco
I will change the script (along with dropping cygwinports support).
At present cygcheck-dep prints out exactly what setup.ini claims about
what the package is requiring, and as per I have understood, now setup.exe
does not install requisites from the _obsolete category, using instead
the packages by which they are obsoleted.
