Thank you.  I tried to outline the advantages here:

I saw only two problems with mined when creating the cygport file.  The
project neither uses autotools, nor cmake, nor does it support building
outside the source tree.  The downside is that you have to do the lndirs
shuffle, and that it's tricky to induce the flags necessary to build a
debuginfo package.  Maybe Yaakov knows what to add to the cygport file
to generate the debuginfo stuff automatically.
