I am working on proper cross-compiler support within cygport now:
* cygconf handling of build/host/target;
* modifying the libtool fixup for different targets;
* handling conflicting files between native and cross-compiler/ed
packages (to allow prefix=/usr).
Regarding libtool fixups: am I correct that on mingw32/64 platforms,
deep non-module libs still need to be relocated to remove the ../bin
(IOW put the DLL alongside the .la)?
