IMHO either cygport shpuld be fixed to use "-" instead of "~" or setup
should be fixed to handle "~" in filenames.
setup uses whatever you use when you name the .cygport file.
I did this:
mv gendef-1.0~svn2931-1.cygport gendef-1.0_svn2931-2.cygport
mv gendef-1.0~svn2931-1.cygwin.patch gendef-1.0_svn2931-2.cygwin.patch
mv gendef-1.0~svn2931-1.src.patch gendef-1.0_svn2931-2.src.patch
cygport ./gendef-1.0_svn2931-2.cygport get
cygport ./gendef-1.0_svn2931-2.cygport all
and it behaved exactly as you would expect.
I repeated the experiment with a hyphen rather than an underscore, and
that worked just fine, too. All that appears to matter is that the
separator character between "1.0" and "svnNNNN" is not a digit or
decimal point. (For all I know, a decimal point would work too, but I'll
leave that as an exercise for the student...)
Oh, I didn't know that, I'll use _ from now on.
