PN/PV/PR/P/etc. are defined before source()ing the cygport(5) -- dating 
back to when these were detected from the file name instead of its 
contents -- but S/B/C/D are initialized *afterwards*, primarily because 
S can vary if SRC_DIR is defined.

In this case, you'll need to pass the BASENAME and MANDIR arguments 
directly to cygmake and cyginstall.
