Ah, good point.  I'll check tomorrow and make a more comprehensive list.


This list might not be complete - for instance 'clang' (and its sub-packages) are missing from 64-bit Cygwin, and they are also not in Yaakov's list. (I tried generating my own list, but my simple bash script didn't knock out obsolete packages and hence generated a lot of noise).

The converse is also true - there are packages in 64-bit-land that don't have a 32-bit equivalent - examples include hostname, libmhash2 and libturbojpeg. I've attached this list - we can ignore any package starting 'cygwin32', but everything else deserves some attention.
