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.
http://www.cadforte.com/cygwin-uploader/lzip/lzip-1.8-1.tar.bz2 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.
