If you don't like my suggestion of providing src_postinstall, then
I think there should be a different way for cygport users to have
some control over the postinstall process. What about defining
variables (like PREPEMACS, etc.) that allow the user to turn the
__prep* functions on or off?
If you don't like this suggestion either, what about the attached
patch? The rationale is that if the compile and install steps have
produced some byte-compiled files, then there's no reason for cygport
to step in and do more.
Just because *some* files have been byte-compiled doesn't mean that
*all* possible files have been. So what about using "--eval
(batch-byte-compile `true)" instead of "-f batch-byte-compile"? That
will ignore any files that have already been compiled.
