Well, that apparently was enough of a clue to hunt down the correct
package.  Now, what were you actually doing to trigger this?  I don't
mind ading a manual dependency to the package, but if these calls
execute from a script I think the dependency check from cygport is
supposed to pick them up (there are both false positives and negatives,
so I know it isn't foolproof).
