  Thanks very much for the feedback.  Addressing the package
naming issues and the way the patch file is generated should
be done today.  As for the other issue...

My mounts are binary - the problem is that the original source (and
working copy of the Cygwin port) are kept under Perforce, in a client
that is set up to explicitly translate text files into dos style line
endings on checkout.

I'll have to think about the best way to deal with this, so fixing
it may take a bit longer.
