This is a documentation error.  The X-start-menu-icons package is obsolete and
does not exist for x86_64.

I've updated the documentation to remove this reference.

I've also updated the documentation to remove the reference to setup.exe and
point to the architecture specific setup programs instead.

This is caused by bug in cygutils, and should be fixed in cygutils 1.4.14-1
