I don't quite understand yet what you're trying to do and why, but
"--destdir" doesn't have the right ring to it for my ears.  If I'm not
mistaken you want to strip the staging prefix from the database entry,
which incidentally would be where a

make DESTDIR=/staging install

would have placed the files?

Since cygwin1.dll is always at a fixed address anyway, then you don't
need to do anything extra, I think.
