My previous response notwithstanding, if you (Igor) do intend to take over
maintainership of the generic build script, please feel free to go ahead and
do it - I'll spend the time on something else (I've received a request to
ITP libsegv, which currently fails two of four testsuite tests, and will look
into it; I've also received a request to add a couple of POSIX system calls
to Cygwin (for which I'd have to print, sign and send the copyright waiver, 
which is on my TODO list for next week) and I have a draft design for
pluggable fhandlers, based on what fhandlers were like before cgf changed 
them for 1.5.6.. (I haven't checked out the current version from CVS yet to
adapt my design).

I really do intend to spend a month's time on this project (including the
update of the documentation) and I also do intend to make sure I can continue
working on Cygwin-related work when I start looking for a paid job again..
