1) $SIG is a user-specific variable and should be defined in your 
~/.cygport.conf, not in a .cygport.

2) $top in an internal variable and is not part of the public cygport 
API.  Same goes for __step (use inform() instead).  I could change these 
tomorrow and your .cygport will break.

3) Why the umask 022?
