Given the results of the thread re: Possible cygport bug with cross 
compiles (e.g. there is no bug), it looks like:

1) rebuild the -header package so that the includes end up in the 
"correct" location.  The current cygport(5) for that package is fine 
(e.g. (a) the extra rule in src_install is needed, and proper, and (b) 
it does the right thing)

2) fix the setup.hints

and you're GTG!
