Fresh kde-3.1.1-b1 cannot find some dlls

I installed "setup-kde-3.1.1-b1.exe" to a cygwin install, on which
no version of kde was installed before.

After adding the kde path by hand (the installer did not do it),
at least some of it runs fine. During startup I get errors from
  kwin.exe (kwin.dll not found)
  kicker.exe (cygkickermain-1.dll not found)
and the desktop does not work (as you can imagine).

>From kde 2 beta, I remember you had to install some kde 1 package,
but I cannot remember which one and I haven't found anything in
the release notes or requirements.

So, what is missing?

BTW: What is the explorer kill and restart during install good for?
If you want to refresh the environment, an api call like this
                     (LPARAM) "Environment", SMTO_ABORTIFHUNG, 5000,
is more appropriate.
