TeX Live includes biber.exe, which is packaged as a stand-alone binary

I've been shipping with texlive doesn't function as a stand-alone binary
because it's been stripped by cygport. Is there a way that cygport can
recognize such binaries and not strip them?
Is there some sort of magic number or something that can be used to
detect that, as we do for OCaml bytecode?
"Anatomy of a Self-Contained PAR executable"), every such file ends with
the 8-byte string "\012PAR.pm\012".
Thanks for the hint. I committed a fix to cygport git.
