I'm trying to compile FUSS on Cygwin, and ran into this issue at the end of make:

...
  Compiling o/update.o....
Generating dependency file ...
make[1]: perl: Command not found
make[1]: *** [smaug] Error 127
make: *** [all] Error 2


And .. I've really no idea how to fix or what to do! Any advice would be wonderful, Thanks!

You might need to install 'perl' as part of your Cygwin installation.

In trying to download the PERL package, I somehow messed up and reinstalled Cygwin completely, losing what packages I did have. Can anyone pretty please let me know what all packages I need to compile FUSS on Cygwin? Thanks!

*note: I feel like a moron.*

You definitely need 'make', 'gcc', probably 'g++', 'perl'. Probably 'tcsh' as well. Cygwin will automatically add dependencies as necessary. At worse, you can always add more packages later.

Actually, that link is out of date; you need g++ now. I'm pleasantly surprised that I got the list right :-)

I'd just install all packages, unless you are hurting for disk space. But surely thats not the case with 1TB hard drives for under $100!

It sure beats dealing with the Cygwin installer when you find out something is missing or needs to be updated and the Cygwin web site is down for hours on end. I'm totally not speaking from experience :P
