It's hard to know what people's preferences will be. I gave emacs-X11
the highest priority for two reasons:
* It's been the only GUI version of emacs on Cygwin for many years, so
making it the default doesn't change what people are used to.
* It's the build you get by default if you don't override it with
Maybe I should supply a script that lets users easily change the
priority, something like the scripts set-gcc-default-*.sh that Dave Korn
provided for gcc.
