Is this the right approach then?

rc_compile() {
        cd ${B}

src_install() {
        cd ${B}
        cygmake install

I have to say while the documentation is detailed I mostly have a
look at the provided examples and try to read up on the individual
function. Is there an overview document somewhere that explains how
this is supposed to fit together?

Kind regards,


May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
