cygport already has the --exclude option that you can use when 
specifying package contents. For example, in poco.cygport I have this:

     poco_CONTENTS="--exclude=html usr/bin/*.exe usr/share"

This means that the 'html' directory is excluded from the 'poco' 
package, and placed in 'libpoco-doc' instead.

Is this what you were after, or do you need something a little cleverer?
