* Add support for building 64-bit package.
  * Remove apr1 -> libapr1 transition package for 64-bit.
  * Compile with -Werror.
* Disable flock() file locking. It is broken in 1.7.18-1 and
  was broken 1.7.19-3 (64-bit). I should have enabled it again for
  the 64-bit release but forgot.
* Switch to version-less cygport file format.
* Switch to autogenerated hints and no CYGWIN-PATCH
  directory. Hence, no README.

The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) project is to
create and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable
and consistent interface to underlying platform-specific
implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to which
software developers may code and be assured of predictable if not
identical behaviour regardless of the platform on which their
software is built, relieving them of the need to code special-case
conditions to work around or take advantage of platform-specific
deficiencies or features.
