These libraries aren't in the CygWin installation

either. It would make sense
Well, I built the binaries using just the cygwin installation
so they must be there somewhere. When you run setup.exe take
a look under "Graphics" you should find all the required

to have one archive with all of the required libraries

I've wasted a lot of time just figuring this stuff

This much is true. Also it might be possible to detect in the
netinstaller whether you have the appropriate libraries
