Absolutely yes :)

Just doing this causes mismatch of SRC_DIR with actual source
package. However, making ${NAME}-{$VERSION}/dummy file does not
seem necessary.

So, I modified the cygport file as follows.
    mkdir -p ${NAME}-${VERSION}
    tar acf ${SRC_URI} ${NAME}-${VERSION}
    rm -rf ${NAME}-${VERSION}

Indeed. Fixed. Thanks!

That's what I understood from
however, actually libopenh264.{postinstall,preremove} are
not installed during install process by cygport 0.36.0
even though openh264-2.3.1-1.cygwin.patch exists.

Could you please give me a hint how I can make it work?
