cygport ... install starts in cwd but ... all does not

When rerunning a cygport build with "cygport *.cygport all" after fixing up
problems stage by stage, "doicon $NAME.png" at the start of src_install, before
"cd/pushd ${B}" fails with fatal message "*** ERROR: file $NAME.png does not
exist", whereas rerunning "cygport *.cygport install" succeeds without any

Even changing cd to pushd, and adding popd at the end of each src_... function,
does not solve the issue.

The package does not include an icon, so I downloaded something suitable to the
same package directory as the $NAME.cygport and *.patch PATCH_URI files.

Any alternative approaches that anyone can suggest might work?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
