Thanks Yaakov! It seems that I succeeded following the README file in
the graphviz port package.  I uncompress the package into the /usr/src
followed by doing a 'cygport graphviz-*.cygport download' and 'cygport
graphviz-*.cygport all'.

The process seems quite successful except after run I still don't get
the graphviz installed.  I have to launch the cygwin setup.exe and
point it to the local directory of /usr/src and then do a installation
for packages found there.  Is this normal?

And, a little strange is, there are so many packages (*.tar.bz2) found
in my /usr/src directory, more than those generated from graphviz
build process as the README noted, these packages includes boots-*
freetype-*  gcc-testsuite-*.  I don't why I have these packages in the
/usr/src and I can remember that I did not touched /usr/src directory
before.  Do you have a clue?

Thank you again.
