I have PAR::Packer and its dependencies ready for upload later today, 
and have updated Ports git accordingly.

It's not actually required; EU::Embed's xsinit command automatically 
adds hooks for all static extensions: normally DynaLoader, and on 
MSWin32/Cygwin, Win32CORE.  The latter isn't usually needed on Cygwin, 
so AFAICS it should be omitted.

I'll have to figure out properly how to fix this in the perl build 
(Reini?), but in the meantime, in 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/x86_64-cygwin-threads/Config_heavy.pl, change the 
definition of static_ext to ' ' (the space is required), then rerun the 
build of biber.
