"version" is not a valid tag in setup.hint.  Also, the 64 bit release is
already at version 3.22-13, so your version shoud bump to a higher
release number.

New packages are supposed to use cygport packaging.  Please see my
former 64 bit procmail package procmail-3.22-13-src.tar.bz2, it's
already using cygport.

These steps should be part of the src_install() function in the
cygport file.
