You are correct that cygcppunit-1-12-0.dll is required, and this
requirement comes from the self-compiled version of CPPUnit, as outlined
in my instructions: the Cygwin version of CPPUnit is not used.
I followed Chris' instructions for building CPPUnit locally by the
letter, and yet this dependency exists. Perhaps there is a way to build
that dll statically into boxi.exe?
cygwin1.dll is most certainly not required to run any of the builds.
A newer build based on Boxi R645 and Box Backup R2548 is now available
 and contains only the following files:
cygcppunit-1-12-1.dll (CPPUnit as described above)
mgwz.dll (MingW zlib, as opposed to building it by hand)
mingwm10.dll (MingW dll required since we use -mthreads option)
Best regards, Achim
