This could alternatively be written using a custom src_install which
calls cyginstall then moves the directory, which might be less
brittle to changes in the file list?
This might be an upstream defect if it doesn't respect --docdir?

Right, I've just sent a PR to the upstream to fix it. See
I've included it as a patch in the cygport file, which we can remove
in the next version if the PR is merged.

DEPEND might be better written pkgconfig(atomic_ops)
Again, stuff installed to usr/share/gc/ should probably be moved to

Similarly, the PR:

I note we also have libgc-7.2d-2 as non-source package, which just
contains usr/share/doc/Cygwin/libgc.README. That probably needs to
