In the past there are known some BIG problems about multiple DLLs in the 
system.. so it's better to always use setup.exe to install (maybe with a 
local dir containing just the needed packages, to avoid network install) 
and have a "real" cygwin installed.
distributing the file with the DLL is "not good".

I am indeed, unfortunately I have too much business & university work to 
examine it carefully at this time, I hope to have some in the christmas 
vacations, though.
Please be patient ^_^
