Well, thanks. I used it for the latest lighhtpd package and I like it's
small .cygport file better that the g-b-s: it essentually contains all
the same "mods" but only those show instead of being dispersed in a
535-lines file.

What is your (and/or the suggested) way to "upgrade" a package to next
release? Do you have a script for that too?
(with g-b-s I usually ended up using SED on the .patch to change
directory names and try to apply it on the new sources directly,
adjusting thing when needs be, and I guess I could do something similar
using cygport too, at the worst)
