Hi Mark,
thanks for your offering; we wait your cygport and
packages for x86 and X86_64 for double check
before green light to upload.

In the past what annoyed me of the nco package is that you can only do
a static build of the common library due to a cross dependency
between the programs and the nco library.
This makes all programs larger than they should.

Feel free to ask any question on packaging here
