Following Marco's advice, here is a wget'able list for lzip.

Packaging looks almost good. The binaries in usr/bin are missing the .exe suffix for some reason.



It was built and installed that way with cygport (Cygwin 1.7), the provided non-autotools build system for lzip was originally designed for Linux, eg "g++ -o bar foo.o".

I think it has something to do with the rename() thing, but otherwise, it runs perfectly fine. now has the .exe extension, but filesize is smaller for some reason, the original tarball without the "exe" extension is available as "lzip-1.8-1.tar.bz2.bk" in the same directory.
