Thanks for providing this package.  I had a look and I have a few nits:

- The DLLs in /usr/bin are not following the naming convention for
  Cygwin DLLs.  They should start with the "cyg" prefix.

- The files /usr/bin/rxtest1.dll and /usr/bin/rxtest2.dll look like
  stray files, which are not supposed to be distributed.  They are
  not present in the Debian distro.

- The Debian package is split into three subpackages, regina-rexx,
  libregina3, and libregina-dev.  Apart from the fact that the devel
  package in Cygwin should be called libregina-devel, this layout
  seems to make a lot of sense.  Wouldn't it be better to do this
  for the Cygwin package as well?

- The package-specific directories are called "Regina-REXX", while on
  debian they are lowercase only, "regina-rexx".  It's very much a
  matter of taste, but it might be nice to do this for Cygwin as well.
