Marco queried whether the version number was necessary in the

Boost package (which has version numbers in its directory names), but
feel free to change this if you think necessary.
It's not just the directory names that have version numbers in them
but also the package names. A package called libpoco-1.4.6, with a
hyphen followed by a number, looks very unusual to me. At the very
least, I think the hyphen should disappear, but probably part of 1.4.6
should also disappear. Someone who understands library naming
conventions should give you some advice here.
Thanks for the advice, Ken. Yes, you're quite right - the boost
directory names don't contain the hyphen. It's rather late now, but I'll
drop an e-mail to the main Cygwin list tomorrow and ask for opinions on
the package names. I really don't mind what these packages are called as
long as everyone is happy!
Once we've all agreed, I'll tweak my cygport file, rebuild and send
another RFU. So please hold off uploading for the time being.
