[osgeo4w-dev] Dependencies for gdal not installed on 64-bit machines

Apt got it's start from cyg-apt written by an indenpendent party for 
cygwin, e.g. it was never part of the cygwin package ecosystem. It's 
been abandoned for a long time, and there are at least two other forks 
aside from mine. Since osgeo-setup.exe was forked from cygwin's 
setup.exe they've done a major overhaul and added command line 
parameters so work on the cyg-apt forks is minimal -- that I'm aware of, 
I don't pay much attention anymore.

I've always intended to backport my osgeo changes to cyg-apt, or make 
apt not care if it's installing osgeo4w or cygwin, but I don't know when 
or if that will happen as I don't use cygwin very much these days.

This is the closest I think:
