Re: cygport: Adding arbitrary files to the src package

They are just some files which should show up in the source package for
some dubious reason of my own.

If they are not compressed files, you can add them to SRC_URI and they will be copied into $S during unpack. If you need them elsewhere, and they are text, copy them into $S after unpacking and they should end up in your .src.patch, which you can rename and add to PATCH_URI for future use. (Just include a patch to some existing file in order to "anchor" the patch.)

As always, if you could specify the actual package and .cygport you are trying to build, I may be able to find other solutions.
