  Hey folks,

  After building cygwin from sources,

       make DESTDIR=.... install

... doesn't seem to work, at least not with the released cygwin 1.5.23-2 source
tarball.  Is it meant to, or is there some other procedure for spinning a binary
release package?  ("make dist" wasn't too useful either... it just issues a
message telling you to look in etc/, leaving you standing there scratching your
head and going "ok, i'm looking, but what for?"!)

  (BTW, patch to follow for the cygheap allocation bug I've run up against).

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
