It's strange ...  When use method of
'', I failed because I cannot found
graphviz package in the setup's package list window even though I did
see the package in the server's directory tree.

When use method of cygport directory, I also failed because cyyport
complained that 'php' is needed, it seems another port.  But  php is
likely a big family that contains a dozen of packages, that threatened
me :(
