Is anyone interested in taking over as maintainer of libgc and w3m?
libgc used cygports for its current version, w3m used g-b-s.
I suspect the libgc problem alluded to above (from the cygwin mailing
list) is just a version issue but I'm not sure. I haven't been able
to use cygports successfully but that's more a problem with my
understanding of cygports than any specific libgc issues.
