It is ;)

Ignore the created toplevel files, rather cd into the cygport project
dir and then into the "dist" subdir.  There you will find a proper
package directory, neatly arranged for upload, including all setup.hint

Yaakov, I'm wondering if it isn't time to do two things:

- Create a new cygport version which does not create the toplevel
  files anymore.

- Create a short documentation how to create the new cygport files.
