Several GNU packages are now starting to supply additional configure

of using them:
Notice the additional lines mentioning Cygwin. Is it worth teaching
cygport to automatically supply configure arguments of:
--with-packager=Cygwin --with-packager-version=$PVR \
for packages that support this idiom? If not, then this email serves as a
hint for other packagers to modify their own .cygport files.
cygconf provides the standard arguments which are common to all
autoconf-generated configures. AFAICS (but correct me if I'm wrong)
these are not standard arguments, rather separate AC_ARG_WITHs which
some packages are choosing to implement. In that case I consider them
package-specific and I would encourage packagers to add them accordingly
to those packages' CYGCONF_ARGS or as arguments to cygconf.
Thanks though for the heads-up.
