I have just released cygport-0.10.11 for the Cygwin distribution and the
Fedora Cygwin repository.  New features in this release:

* Split debuginfo subpackages are created automatically whenever

* Start Menu entries are automatically created for starting X sessions.

* GOC and GOFLAGS are supported for gccgo (currently only supported on
Linux cross-compiles, and requires a recent autoconf).

* The new clang.cygclass makes it easier to use clang instead of gcc
(not recommended for Cygwin yet, but may be useful in some
cross-compiling scenarios).

* The new xvfb.cygclass simplifies building packages which require a
running X session when building.

* Updates for KDE 4.8.x, python-3.2, texlive pretest, Xfce 4.10.
