Evidently this thread is one of those that refuse to die. Sigh.
To reiterate my point, I don't *care* what people use to install
packages I distribute; if you install using the method outlined in the
INSTALL file, I'll support it and answer problem reports; if you choose
to use some other tool not distributed as part of the cygwin32 user
tools, you're on your own.

Well, others *have* had problems, and I've responded to quite a few. I
don't know what the problem is (dealing with hard links, text mode
convertion, whatever it may be). Dealing with such non-problems takes
time away from important things that I could be spending my free time on.
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"email@example.com" with one line of text: "help".
