You'd have to fake a -3 package set, with libexpat-devel-3 set to
obsolete libexpat1-devel-2, so that package developers would
automatically get new packages on their next Cygwin update.
If you're willing to do that for 32 and 64 bit, ok.
...aren't I going to get exactly the same output tarballs as
before, just with different names?
The content of the src packages won't match the new version if we
just copy the files. A rebuild is simplest and cleanest.
I'll wait for this PKG_OBSOLETES feature to ship in Cygport, and be a
guinea pig for it.
While you're waiting, could you provide a setup.hint for libexpat1-devel
(64 bit)? Without a setup.hint, it gets put into the Misc category and
is then installed by default.
