It didn't, I just know that this GNOME crap will always need another 40
packages installed before I can even start looking.

Here's what I have so far:

1. Do not add the runtime packages to BUILD_REQUIRES (i.e if you have
zlib-devel, then don't add zlib).  If there are runtime packages you
need for testing, list them on a separate line and comment that these
are needed for testing only (xclock, graphviz?).  Currently we assume
the dependencies needed by cygport to be available always without
explicitly mentioining them (e.g. autoconf), although it doesn't hurt to
have them in.

2. The option --without-gnomeprint seems no longer available and would
be default anyway since gtkprint gets detected and used.

3. You should explicitly specify that you want to use the system regex
library, so add --with-regex=sys.

4. It should be possible to enable full STL now, so add --enable-stl.

5. If you copy the config.cache forward to the next run of configure you
can save a bit of time not rechecking stuff you already checked.
