I am attempting to build softare (GNU libmicrohttpd) with cygport on x86, but am
getting errors when it links against libgnutls:

/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/ No such file or directory
libtool:   error: '/usr/lib/' is not a valid libtool archive

Likely cause:

Cygwin gnutls-devel 3.2.21-1 installs /usr/lib/ and this file references

However /usr/lib/ has been removed as of libtans1-devel 0.49-1.
See announce message here: .

Could the maintainers of libgnutls-devel and libtasn1 please resolve this!

Here is my libmicrohttpd.cygport file should you need to reproduce the problem:
