Could you specify?

There are two things:

1. I don't think __prepemacs should be called for this package because the compile process explicitly byte compiles most of the *.el files. There are three (at the top level of /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp) that it does not byte compile. I don't know the reason, but I don't think the Cygwin build should override this upstream decision.

2. I would prefer that __prep_texlive not be called, since it causes the postinstall script to do unnecessary work. All that's needed for auctex is mktexlsr.

I'm attaching my .cygport and .cygwin.patch files so you can see how I dealt with this (after changing src_postinst.cygpart so that I could redefine __src_postinst).
