Any changes made or needed in cygport or scallywag for mingw64 packages?
I've rebuilt and reuploaded both Mingw curl noarches to see if they make it.

I found that for cygport NAME must be a hardcoded constant string not requiring
script evaluation; hopefully other content is evaluated in the script context
and does not also require to be hardcoded constants.
