Perhaps, but that doesn't mean that an accessibility package doesn't
make sense in the Base category. It *might* be better to put it into
Utils, but YMMV depending on your eyesight.
Looking into the package again, I noticed two problems, though:
- There's an executable xbrlapi.exe in the package which depends on X.
This is not noted in setup.hint. However, No package in the Base
category should depend on X, so that X isn't pulled in by default.
Samuel, can you re-package brltty so that it comes in two packages,
one brltty package which could be in Base or Utils, and another
package called xbrlapi which is in X11 and Utils?
- cygbrlapi-0.5.dll depends on WS2_32.DLL. Why? Shouldn't the package
use Cygwin's socket functions?
