Thanks for the information. I used the same source URL as Fedora  -
in fact, I just translated Fedora's 'spec' file into 'cygport' form.
Obviously, a new maintainer is free to pick whichever source of the Moby

mirror, the files have all been renamed meaning that Fedora's 'typos'
patch won't apply.
