You could have renamed the p7zip-15.09-2.cygwin.patch file or you could
remove it and add these three lines to the cygport file:

SUMMARY="A file archiver with very high compression ratios."
DESCRIPTION="p7zip is the Unix port of 7-Zip, a file archiver that
archives with very high compression ratios.  It supports
packing/unpacking 7z, zip, gzip bzip2, xz, tar, and wim archives.  It
supports unpacking of arj, cab, chm, cpio, dmg, hfs, lzh, lzma, wim,
xar, z, nsis, deb, rpm, msi, udf, iso, ntfs, fat, vhd, and mbr
archives.  This version does NOT support rar archives."
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You might also want to add 'DEPEND="nasm"', since the build needs it
(probably other stuff too, but I already had that installed).
