Will do in next week's release.  It is hard for me to caught this errors
because I have a full cygwin environment on my development machine. Can you
run through all the *.exe in the win32/ directory and let me know of any
other missing DLL? I simple csh script like this might do it.

foreach exe ( *.exe )
 $exe -help
 if ( $status ) echo "++++++ check $exec"

BTW, is there any other Unix utility that you would like to see included?
The idea here is to make it easier to port GrADS scripts from Linux/Unix to
Windows.  Of course, I do not want to replicate a full Cygwin distro, but
can always include a couple more utilities.
