When I type into my bash shell, for example

The directory /usr/share/dict does not even exist. I have reinstalled
the util-linux package. No help.

Any suggestions? Cygcheck output is attached.

Maybe try the source package?  Dunno.  It's definitely not in the binary
package or anything else I can find via 2&grep=look.exe

What package 'look.exe' is in is not the question, Dave K.. Read the thread through again.

Something that occurred to me later was that the postinstall script could
be the one responsible for generating this file somehow.  David, I suppose
you could also look at this (/etc/postinstall/
