Thank you for this comment.  It gives me a place to start.
If there are any other important initial steps to the "standard procedure",
(or a place to find a list of all the steps) please let me know.

Also:  The issues that I am facing are clearly not specific to the
cygwin-xfree group.  When I do have further questions related to porting
a very old package (that does still build and work on Linux) to cygwin,
which is the best forum in which to ask them?
