I remember some discussion that the cygwin dependency, which most packages have, should not (or does not need to be) listed.
And in fact, mintty does not depend on bash. Why does cygport think so?

Uh, Mintty definitely *does* depend on Bash, what makes you think it doesnt?
As a simple test case, rename Bash and try to run Mintty. You get this:

Failed to run '/bin/bash': No such file or directory
/bin/bash: Exit 126.
