Thanks for the heads up.  I'll look into it as part of packaging the
just-released git-  I'm hoping that the upgrade to cygport 0.2.7
will help here, too.

Another thing I have to resolve is why hard links aren't being preserved -
when I build git myself, 59 files git-*.exe get hardlinked together
(explainable since "git foo" and "git-foo" do the same thing, so the first
thing that git does is decode argv[0] to decide whether the dash was
present on the command line).  But after cygport gets done with things, I
have 59 identical, but separate, binaries.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
