i think, that first thing is to make all cygwin packages as a .deb
package, so i can install via dpkg all all files into right position
an example:
on debian
xxxx% locate perl | grep bin

on cygwin
$ locate.exe perl | grep.exe bin

and i am not mentioning any xfree files :-)

next it is to compile and package most needeed libs into w32, so we
can try to compile as many other packages as possible and as next it
is to have some source, which we can use in /etc/apt/sources.list
