Couldn't resist! Yours if you would like it:

# 64-bit:
wget --no-check-certificate --no-host-directories --force-directories 
--cut-dirs=5 \
${BASEURL}/ninvaders/ninvaders-0.1.1-1-src.tar.bz2 \
${BASEURL}/ninvaders/ninvaders-0.1.1-1.tar.bz2 \
${BASEURL}/ninvaders/ninvaders-debuginfo/setup.hint \

I started with the 32-bit source. This had an enormous sh script to 
build and prepare the files for upload. I couldn't get this to work, so 
I wrote a cygport file and used that instead. Some of the patches in the 
32-bit version were a little bizarre; I carried across the ones that 
made sense.

BTW, 'ninvaders -gpl' is supposed to show the text of the GPL. This is 
broken in the existing 32-bit build, but I fixed it for the 64-bit build 
above. Would you like me to roll a 32-bit build with the fix?
