there is no special code on my packages, so deploying a cygwin package
was already on my plan.
It will be just an addition to the other packages for which I am already
the cygwin package maintainer
I want just to be sure that it works as expect before deploying it,
and testing on a notebook is a bit limited.
The only peculiarity I noticed is that the stripped binaries do
not work, so the current package is based on unstripped installation.
Other step is to look if other options can be enabled:
LDFLAGS="-Wl,--export-all-symbols -no-undefined" \
at least "shmem-sysv" should be possible.
