You only need apt-Cyg to get the php5 modules needed by lighthttpd. None of that should affect your ability to build.

We should already be including tar, gawk, and bzip2. If we are not, something is. Dry broken.

Wget is the only item that I believe is missing from our Cygwin bundle.

In the last requisite step of "Installing the Developer Tools", I ran the script apt-cyg and got the message "You must install wget, tar, gawk and bzip2 to use apt-cyg". But the cygwin the webkit team provided (cygwin-downloader.zip) doesn't include these tools.
