Hi Yaakov

I'm about to rebuild XmHTML-1.1.7 against latest libpng. I noticed that
the autogeneration code in cygport detected a perl dependency because an
example file in /usr/share/doc/XmHTML/examples contains the perl shebang
line. Shouldn't the autodetection code by default take into account only
files outside of the documentation directories ? Because strictly
speaking the binary in XmHTML-1.1.7 doesn't depend on perl.
