Re: adopt and update libatomic_ops and libgc

I would like to adopt and update the now orphaned libatomic_ops and

maintained.

The updated cygport files can be found at:
https://github.com/andyli/libatomic_ops-cygwin
https://github.com/andyli/libgc-cygwin

Note that I've split them into separated packages, since the source of
libgc no longer contains a copy of atomic_ops, and they are versioned
independently as well.

Please review and let me know if there is anything to improve.

Thanks.

libatomic_ops.cygport:

A comment that we need to correct for this installing it's documentation into usr/share/libatomic_ops, rather that usr/share/doc/libatomic_ops might be nice.

This could alternatively be written using a custom src_install which calls cyginstall then moves the directory, which might be less brittle to changes in the file list?

This might be an upstream defect if it doesn't respect --docdir?

libgc.cygport:

DEPEND might be better written pkgconfig(atomic_ops)

Again, stuff installed to usr/share/gc/ should probably be moved to usr/share/doc/gc


I note we also have libgc-7.2d-2 as non-source package, which just contains usr/share/doc/Cygwin/libgc.README. That probably needs to be cleaned up by being obsoleted.
