I'm using non-versioned cygport files and have patched cygport to deal
with those correctly.  The packaged cygport file should have been
run-1.3.3-1.cygport for the unpatched cygport version to work correctly.
Somehow that's not happening anymore, I'll have to see that how to
correct that.

The last "-run" is a result of the above and the "cygwin-run" at the
beginning is a result of the way cygport deals with Git repositories.
Cygport seems to prefer the versioned package file if it finds one over
the Git snapshot, I'm not sure if that's the way it should be.

There is no right or wrong way, but you can just unpack into / for this

Yes, until I can convince Yaakov to accept my patches.
