Thanks for packaging this interesting package.  I just see two small
hiccups in the packaging.

The libnfc package is the one providing the DLL.  However, the DLL is a
versioned one.  To provide a way to keep older versions of a library
around after an upstream version bump, the DLL should be packed in its
own, versioned package:

  libnfc -> source only
  libnfc5 -> provides usr/bin/cygnfc-5.dll

The lib-dev package looks good, it should just called "libnfc-devel"
to follow the naming convention.

With these changes, the packages should be GTG.  Btw., we need a
private ssh key from you to enable your update rights.  See
