Yes, but your version builds a whole bunch of bindings and such that you 
can't do using only packages in the official Cygwin distro.  When I said 
I couldn't get graphviz to build, it's because I was still in the 
process of removing stuff from your .cygport file.  My effort to adopt 
these new packages is interleaved with "real work", so my 
edit/compile/debug/retry cycle is hours long.

As I see it, this is why Ports is still useful, because I don't see 
Cygwin adopting 100% of the packages in it.  These interdependencies 
make Ports much richer, but also more complicated.  There's a need for both.
