The following package has been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

*** cygport-0.9.85-1

cygport is a tool for building Cygwin packages.

The major feature of this release is that cygport now fixes deep
*non-module* libtool shared libraries by putting the DLL in /usr/bin
during the automatic postinstall stage.  For example, MySQL installs its
library as /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.la.  Libtool will put the dll
in ../bin, resulting in the
nonsensical /usr/lib/bin/cygmysqlclient-16.dll.  cygport will detect
that libmysqlclient.la is NOT a module, put the DLL in /usr/bin, and fix
dlname in the .la accordingly.  While hopefully this will one day be
fixed in libtool, in the meantime this should take care of many of these
sorts of packages.

Otherwise, this release consists mostly of bug fixes and minor tweaks.
