I was vetoing the package for inclusion in cygwin.  I was actually
nodding my head when I read your objection to packages being submitted
which use cygbuild, but Chuck is right.  Since there is no official
package in the distribution, it would be inconsistent to block a package
because it uses a build system not in the distribution.

So, IMO, there's no reason to block packages which use diverse build
systems as long as the build system itself is available somewhere.
