Do you plan on ITPing something which uses this?  A library by itself is
of little use.

Several problems:

* The source package (NAME) should be name mxml;
* A shared library should be created (pass --enable-shared to cygconf);
* Static libraries are not generally desired;
* There should be 2-3 subpackages, mxml with any program/utilties,
libmxml1 with the runtime library, and libmxml-devel (not -dev) with the
headers, import library, etc.
