Re: Basic question about cygport

It wouldn't hurt to just ask the question again here instead of sending
people off to read it elsewhere.  If you want to track the problem down
yourself, read /usr/share/doc/cygport/manual.html -- then running cygport
with the --debug switch gives you plenty of output to tell you what's going
on when you run the failing commands.  That said, you might look at a
cygport file that uses insinto/doins and adapt it (from gnuplot):

        mkdir -p ${D}/etc/X11/app-defaults
        insinto /etc/X11/app-defaults/Gnuplot
        doins ${D}/usr/share/gnuplot/${myPV_MAJ_MIN}/app-defaults/Gnuplot

Hope this helps.
