Larry, thanks for your responses...

I assume you meant "Program Files" in your opening statement. Your solution
works. The alternative is to quote the internal paths with spaces or
otherwise escape the spaces.
>> Actually the error specifically states "Files/Windows". It took me a turn to figure out it was complaining about my path. I did try escaping the spaces in $PATH with a \ but that didn't have the desired effect... So I decided to update PATH to not have any spaces.

More than "a few" packages in Cygwin Ports are not in the official
distribution. :-) They can all be installed with 'setup.exe' if you add the
path to the Cygwin Ports repository to 'setup.exe' though.
>> Can you explain this a bit more - I'm not sure how to "add the path to setup.exe". I tried using the above URL from setup.exe - but it didn't give me an option to install deja-dup directly.

Permissions are more problematic on your typical network share. If you can
avoid them, that makes things easier, yes.

Is it really different from the one on Cygwin Ports? Regardless, if you
want to provide it as an official package for Cygwin, read through
<http://cygwin.com/setup.html> and in your ITA/ITP, just ask Yaakov if
he minds you picking up this package and its dependencies from him.
>> Hmm. It probably isn't - however (as I indicated above) I've not been able to figure out how I would go about installing it "directly" - i.e. without first downloading the source from Cygwin Ports and compiling/installing. Perhaps there's another trick I'm not aware of.
