It's no problem for me if the package name is mhash.
I think I will do the following: package mhash-0.8.18.tar.gz containing
libmhash as cygwin package "mhash", package libmcrypt-2.5.7.tar.gz as cygwin
package "libmcrypt" and - if I find the time - also package the mcrypt
command line utility as a separate package "mcrypt".
