Documents about using cygport? Well, sort of ...

Using (Cygwin) git as starting point?
 - git is 'bleeding edge' (unstable by definition)

cygwin.cygport file?
 - No, not present in git ... (not present in the git for newlib-cygwin)
 - a cygwin source tarball (to be found on any Cygwin mirror) is composed
   of a tarball, which represents git at a 'specific moment' in time plus
   the cygwin.cygport file
 - specific moment? Look for the 'cygwin-3_x_y' tags in git ...


cygport build/ cygport package
 - the cygport build system is basically a wrapper around autoconf etc.
   (and build systems like cmake)
 - i.e. configure, make (Makefile) do not know about cygport
