I have just released cygport-0.13.0 for the Cygwin distributions and the
Fedora Cygwin repository.  Notable changes in this release include:

* Implemented [PKG_]OBSOLETES.

* The gnuconfigize function for replacing config.{guess,sub} is now 
public, and is called by all relevant *autoreconf functions.

* The default libexecdir is now /usr/libexec.  NOTE: this will require 
changes to [PKG_]CONTENTS of split packages.

* perl_postinst() is now a deprecated no-op; the functionality has been 
moved to automatic postinstall stage.

* Accept R_CONFIGURE_ARGS in R_compile.

* Documentation improvements and several new examples.

* Removed kde3.cygclass.
