Cygwin is a DLL. That's all that you need for a program to run. The
program and cygwin1.dll. If you don't want to just use
access your paths, then you need mount.exe to set up the mount table.
Once the mount table is set up you can delete mount.exe.
If you want to be able to kill processes, you need 'kill.exe'.
If you want to run shell scripts, you need 'bash.exe' or 'sh.exe'.
Are you going to use makefiles? Then...
Apply some simple logic to the rest of the programs in the distribution.
Do you want to edit? Well you probably need the whole vim package.
Do you want to use ssh to access other systems? Then...
