Oh, and ...

1) The -src extension should be like that, not like .src.
2) Theres no CYGWIN-PATCHES directory in the source archive. (this
should contain the cygwin specific README from the binary, any patches
needed to build compface correctly, and enough information to recreate
the binary and source packages. (Just note form is ok,). The absence of
the readme from the source is a showstopper.
3) I note that there is no .dll, this is fine, but it's also something
you might consider for future releases.

If you can give me a new setup.hint without the xtra "'s, and address 2)
above. I'll upload to for you.
