Hi Konrad,

thanks for the new package ITP.  Comments inline.

You can install a 32 bit version of Cygwin nevertheless, that's what
we all did before the 64 bit Cygwin version existed.  That allows
users of 64 bit machines to build both, 32 and 64 bit versions natively.

Would you mind to give us lazy people the full paths to the files
in a way which is easy to use with wget?  Thanks.

The requires is wrong.  It contains a couple of entries twice.  The
problem is that you added

  REQUIRES="libgcc1 libiconv2 libintl8 libncursesw10 libstdc++6 python \
  libncursesw libiconv util-linux coreutils"

to your cygport file.  REQUIRES should only contain requirements which
are not added automatically by cygport.  There's also no such package
called libncursesw or libiconv.  Something like this seems more

  REQUIRES="util-linux coreutils"

Your setup.hint files are not identical, btw.  Your setup.hint file for
the 32 bit version contains a dependency to cygwin32-gcc-core.  This is
a result of the cross compile and should get manually removed.

Other than that, packaging looks good to me.
