Hi Alois.

it is almost fine

the only problem I see is that the shared library are build as

   libbiosig.dll while they should be called cygbiosig.dll
   (probably better cygbiosig-3.dll to handle the SOMANE)

please also run the test in the ${B} directory

I was playing with the CMakeList.txt to see if that was more easy
than your deep patch of the upstream Makefile's

src_compile() {
     cd ${B}

I see however that also the CMakeLists.txt need some patching as
it builds only the shared lib withouh the SONAME and it is not updated 
to include all the needed file in the t40x directory
and does not build the utility.

Sorry for slow response, but I have little time in this moment
