Re: cygport: Adding arbitrary files to the src package

The problem is, the file is generated during the build. Nevertheless
it's not supposed to be part of the binary package but part of the

PATCH_URI, cygport will try to unpack or apply it as patch during the
prep stage, but the file won't exist at the time...
I am not sure to have understood your case: a version of the file should
be available before the build or not ?
If you need to add the file on the source tree before the build, the
PATCH_URI allow to define a new file, but if you update the file during
the build and you need to save the new file in the new source package
foo-3.4.5-1.src.patch is the right tool, as
the new foo-3.4.1.src.patch in patch and spkg directory will
be different from the original foo-3.4.5-1.src.patch and the new version
will be packed in foo3.4.5-1-src.tar.bz2 .
If the file is not needed before the build why do you need to save it on
the source package ?
I am a bit confused...
