Makes sense.

Okay, good to know. I did manage to get it to compile eventually, but I
had an issue where it would say "dlopen: no such process" when trying to
import the module. Perhaps using an older version of SIP is responsible
for that.

I have re-build the packages using your new cygport as the starting
point, and it seems to work really well. I made some minor modifications
to include the license files and the new patches from Fedora. The new
files are available at https://www.hamishmb.com/files/cygwin-temp/ and I
have removed the previous attempt's files.

Seeing as I have no need to rebuild wxWidgets, I guess that can stay
under your maintainership until an update is needed. I'm happy to pick
it up when needed though, especially with the split packaging making
things easier.
