If you look at the Cygport Install Functions docs for docinto, ...into, 
defining target directories, you would see that an "absolute" path 
disables cygport from prefixing a subdirectory name with the package 
name, etc. so CMakeLists.txt is (linked) under ${S,B}/cmake, and cygport 
will automatically find that, so it should not be required or specified:

	https://cygwin.github.io/cygport/cmake_cygclass.html#robo767

"This is only necessary when the top-level CMakeLists.txt is not in $S 
and cygcmake is not being run in the same subdirectory of $B which under 
$S contains the top-level CMakeLists.txt. (IOW if the top-level 
CMakeLists.txt is in $S/unix and cygcmake is run from $B/unix, setting 
CYGCMAKE_SOURCE would not be necessary.)"

as cygport would find CMakeLists.txt in $S/cmake/ so it would copy or 
link those under $B, and run cygcmake under the equivalent subdirectory.

CMakeLists.txt is found automatically by cygport if it is under $S, as 
that is the documented assumption (see above).
