According to <>, a
Cygwin-specific README is required.  Some maintainers also include port
notes and other Cygwin-specific information (e.g., package contents) in
that file (see the generic readme file on the above page for an example).
It's probably acceptable to have a one-liner referring to the
non-Cygwin-specific documentation in /usr/share/doc/clisp.

CYGWIN-PATCHES should contain at least the Cygwin-specific README (see
above) and setup.hint.

Umm, sorry, I'm not as configure-savvy as I'd like to be...  Do you use
autoconf?  If so, did you re-run it after upgrading?  It would help
knowing which versions of autotools you have installed.
