Re: name for the port

Ok, except for one small problem/issue.  The versions of 
apt and dpkg that I am building are NOT native wintel apps.
They are being porting with/to the cygwin environment, and 
as such, will NOT run if cygwin is not installed.  I don't know
about you, but I for one, and not interested in duplicating the 
man-years of work that the cygwin developers have already
invested by trying to create a native port of apt/dpkg,
