Actually I forgot to ask on the list before packaging. But it's not too
late. I can still repackage if we sort it out.

The actual source package is jasper-1.701.0.zip. The cygwin release will
be revision 2.

libtool for jasper-1.701.0 creates cygjasper-1-701-1.dll

So how should we name the corresponding library package:


libtool for jasper-1.900.1 creates cygjasper-1.dll

In this case we have libjasper1-1.900.1-1.tar.bz2
