[no GTG] There's still no README in CYGWIN-PATCHES and no instructions 
how to build from src. You have to look into the binary packaged
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/mlcscope-14.1.8.README to get a hint.

[good] The binary is now correspondent to cscope, that is does recurse 
into the given dir to scan for all know sourcefile extensions.
Previously you had to prepend this with a find pipe, which was awkward 
given that it should have known about multiple languages.

[minor] There's still the empty homepage dir in the src pkg and also 
under src/homepage.

[no GTG] Following the build instructions in mlcscope-14.1.8.README:
   From /usr/src unpack mlcscope-X-src.tar.bz2
     if you use setup to install this src package, it will be
	 unpacked under /usr/src automatically
   cd /usr/src/mlcscope-X/src
   make build install
$ tar xfj mlcscope-14.1.8-1-src.tar.bz2
$ cd mlcscope-14.1.8-1/src
$ make build
make: *** No rule to make target `build'.  Stop.

That has to fixed into
   cd /usr/src/mlcscope-X
   make build install

[minor] We prefer now to have the html docs in

So please fix the README and add it to the src package.

BTW: It still would be much easier to use cygport.
The cscope-15.5-1.cygport file is this:
DESCRIPTION="developer's tool for browsing source code"

cygport cscope-15.5-1.cygport get almostall
