Yes, I've asked Jerome for a rebuild (after trying myself; I gave up).

Thanks.  I know about that page; but I'm not sure about the status of
all individual items; notably the absolute silly reversed-patch
requirement.  I've seen some discussion, but no conclusion or

I've tried to stay within the spirit of it, the packages should now be
mostly complient.  (Fwiw, I think it's totally silly to reinvent
package management for the umpteenth time.  Three years ago, I ported
RPM and (cross-)built all my Cygwin (lilypond-support) packages as
RPMS.  RPM didn't catch on, and I built a set of cross-build scripts
from the .spec shell-snippets.  But now discussions on cygwin-apps
mention 'RPM-like' behaviour and layout.  Sigh.)
