Test version - the "summary" in manifest.list excludes all the test and fuzz files.

Two points are not clear:
- how do I get the library to build explicitly as cygwgetN - is it just from the
package name libwgetN and cygport will DTRT or ...?
- can I just add the extra files (not under inst/) to the ..._CONTENTS variable
and cygport will DTRT, or do I have to add a src_install with do... script lines
to move the extra files under inst/, then add the corresponding paths under
inst/ to the ..._CONTENTS variables?
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
