I had a look at cygport and looks really nice. I'll try this.

Hmmm? I'm not sure if this is a practical solution because the old
emacs-leim package is just obsolete, if a new emacs package is
installed. How can i describe this inter-package dependency?

And a last question: It's not fully clear to me what's the best mailing
list to ask for problems maintaining e.g. the emacs packages or looking
for testers? cygwin? or cygwin-apps?
