I'm puzzled.  Here's my procmail.cygport file:

SUMMARY="Mail processing program"
DESCRIPTION="Procmail can be used to create mail-servers, mailing lists, sort your
incoming mail into separate folders/files (real convenient when subscribing
to one or more mailing lists or for prioritising your mail), preprocess
your mail, start any programs upon mail arrival (e.g. to generate different
chimes on your workstation for different types of mail) or selectively
forward certain incoming mail automatically to someone."
SRC_URI="${P}.tar.gz \${P}.tar.gz.sig";

MAKEOPTS="EXE=.exe LOCKINGTEST=100 BASENAME=${D}/usr MANDIR=${D}/usr/share/man"

src_compile() {
  cd ${B}

src_install() {
  cd ${B}
  cygmake install

The important thing here is the definition of MAKEOPTS.  When I call
`cygport procmail.cygport install, then cygmake is called with
BASENAME set to just /usr, not to the evaluated resulting string

Why is ${P} in SRC_URI evaluated correctly, but why isn't ${D} in
