BUG: libioperm + libtool + libpopt

I'm only reporting an issue, I don't have a solution other then the 'hatchet' job workaround.

I just installed cygwin +3 days ago, using what ever is the latest version of what ever on a freshly minted winXP machine.

A package I am using links using "libtool" - which uses and finds: /usr/lib/

Which claims to have this dependency:

   # Libraries that this one depends upon.
   dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/'

yet, there is no 'libpopt<anything>' I can find to link against.

I can find the below via "cygwin-setup.exe"

Current version: 1.6.4-4, "keep", libpop0: Library for parsing cmdline parameters - (runtime)

There is no "(development)" version I can find to install, and truthfully "libioperm" does not seem to really need libpopt because, if I comment it out, my link succeeds :-)

I believe one of two things need to happen:

(A)   the "" - is WRONG and needs to be updated
or (B) libpopt - "development" version needs to be created under cygwin.

I don't know enough about doing that - and my work around, while a hack job - works for me.
