I was just packaging a new version of libao and it turns out I need this
patch, too. libao puts some plugin DLLs into /usr/lib/ao/plugins-2.
Those DLLs are *not* marked as modules for some reason, so cygport tries
to move them somewhere and change the dlname in the .la files.

I'm not sure why the DLLs are not marked as modules, but they are not
marked as such in Debian, either. So, I'm trying to follow the Debian
packaging by including *.la files in the -dev package. To do that, I
need to turn off cygports libtool processing and manually fix the dlname
entry myself.
