I don't know of any configuration for lftp to turn off that behaviour 
(which is arguably a defect in lftp), but that's probably something you 
could investigate for yourself.

I am not sure why lftp is used instead of sftp, possibly it is 
insufficiently scriptable to do what cygport wants to do.

Ah, right.

I've updated cygwin-pkg-maint and made the appropriate adjustment.

There still seems to be a problem with the form of the version number 
you've chosen, however.

I am not quite clear how unicode-cldr replaces 
unicode-cldr-emoji-annotation, if we have anything which requires it to 
build, since it doesn't appear to provide the .pc file that did.
