Also available in /usr/share/doc/cygport/README, and the full manual 
from by launching or running:
	$ cygstart /usr/share/doc/cygport/html/manual/index.html
but those, usage, and manpage all omit some options, commands and 
alternatives, and do not state the preconditions necessary for 
commands to work, nor that steps already completed are skipped if the 
command is almostall|all.

>From the current source, supported options are:

--help|-h|-?
--version|-v
--debug|-d
--32|-4
--64|-8

and commands are:

downloadall|fetchall|wgetall|getall
download|fetch|wget|get
prep|unpack
compile|build|make
check|test

postinst*
