The following package has been updated for Cygwin 1.7:

*** cygport: 0.9.80-1

cygport is a tool for building Cygwin packages.

The major improvement in this release is DOCUMENTATION.  (Finally!)  The 
cygport public API has been documented so far (HTML, ~160p); I intend 
that future releases will also include more "guide"-like docs, how-to 
tips, use cases, and the like.

Secondly, the sources have been restructured to minimize the use of 
fork&exec and avoid polluting the build environment with cygport's 
internal variables.

Further changes in this release include:

* SRC_URI supports .tar.lz archives.
* do* and new* install functions detect and correctly install libtool 
.la and .exe wrappers.
* Programs missing an .exe suffix are now stripped and suffixed.
* New mirror: savannah.
* New cygclasses: ant, python3, vim.
* Overhauled cygclasses: docbook, java, opensync, rox, xorg.
* Improved Mono support:
   - A strongname key is included for packages without their own.
   - Added function for creating policy assemblies.
   - Mono assemblies are packaged non-executable to avoid interference 
from Windows .Net Framework.
   - Mono assembly dependencies are now listed during 'cygport deps'.
* gtkmm.cygclass: Adapt for mm-common build system.
* gst-plugins0.10.cygclass: Update for latest releases.
