I would prefer the symlink.  It's still nice to be able to read a
per-package license by following the symlink.

I like the idea.  It may be a while, though before all the packages have
caught up, so we'll see both types in the directory.  I'm assuming that if
you change cygport to help with this, the job for most of my packages will
be as simple as rebuilding.
