Add to or define DEPEND= - note singular - for build time dependencies

some maintainers have so many packages and dependencies installed that it may be
hard for them to figure out what each package needs; it would be great if this
info was captured as a build-depends: line in each package's setup.ini entry.

Add to or define REQUIRES= - note plural - for run time dependencies

cygport tries to figure these out, and the result is captured as a requires:
line in each package's setup.ini entry.

Note that if the cygport file defines PKG_NAMES= with more than one package,

then each Cygwin package should have its own <pkg>_CONTENTS=, <pkg>_DEPEND=, and
<pkg>_REQUIRES= entries in the cygport file, or sometimes in a <pkg>.list file
in the CYGWIN-PATCHES directory.

You can submit cygport file patches on the cygwin-apps list, where discussions
on building packages normally occurs.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
