As an aside, to compile with a different prefix using cygport requires a 
bit of work right now, because AFAIK cygport doesn't support anything 
but --prefix=/usr.


for how I did it. Basically I had to copy cygport's cygconf() function 
and modify it, ditto cygports cyginstall() function.  Then, from my 
src_compile() and src_install() I called my copies.

That's what was needed to put autoconf into /opt/gcc-tools/epoch2/ but 
other, more complex packages -- and they don't get much more complex 
that gcc! -- might need even more custom overrides.

P.S. Hey, Yaakov -- any chance cygport could start supporting custom 
prefixes?  Maybe by inheriting some special cygclass?
