Because I don't know how many user using it, I defered considering such
a contribution. Sorry. There's no problem making package but I didn't
know how to.  What should I do?

Oh, I didn't follow such a topic 'cause I'm very busy for some months.
# and stil now :-(

Proxying is FAQ for Windows users, I think. I made 'tsocks.c' as tiny
library file without depending specific application program.  Actually
I'm using it with cvs, rsync and subversion.  But it is made only for
satisfying my use. So it is not enough functionality and not
sophisticated way. If you think it is usefull, I'll contribute it and
help as possible.

I'm using cvs since about 1.10 until now built with standard way like:

  $ sh ./configure && make

Now I have no major problem with this binary on my use.
So I don't recognize what matter should be considered for cygwin porting.
