and drop the DEPEND line.  The deps will be autogenerated anyway.
Amazing, I wonder, how this works reliably (even with packages that do
not use auto-stuff).
If cygport would still consider DEPEND=libncursesw-devel, it could
generate "requires: libncursesw10" rather than "requires: libncurses10"
and setup.hint file could remain the same for 32bit/64bit.
Also, I'd prefer to keep DEPEND=gettext-devel because (as I had reported
earlier) without gettext cygport fails (and hangs).

You're confusing DEPEND and REQUIRES. The first is for *build* dependencies. It's the second that you want here. Whatever you put in REQUIRES gets added to the automatically generated "requires:".
I didn't confuse them. When I didn't have gettext installed, cygport failed (as reported), so as a workaround for that, DEPEND is what I needed here (to at least get a warning...) as apparently gettext is a build requirement (not for the specific package though, but for cygport itself).
