cd algol68g
wget`uname -m`.tar.bz2

Thank you

you can not assume that
 uname -m

is providing anything useful.
uname -m works on every system I've tried (unlike uname -p, uname -i).
Very useful (e.g. in PATH=$HOME/bin/`uname`.`uname -m`:$PATH).

Moreover we are not using the architecture on the binary file.
I think it is really not a good idea to have the same name for archives of different packages. No other systems I know does this. I had raised this issue well in time ( with some initially positive responses (including yours) but unfortunately no further discussion.
My upload request was a feable attempt to foster this discussion again...

By the way, I have managed meanwhile to package algol68g completely with cygport (see my other thread which I will respond later) and will provide another upload.
