Results may depend on whether the package includes its own collection of
macros, relies on the distro released macros, or includes some of its
own to override the distro macros.

The contents of config.log appear to be not just streams of messages as
you might expect, but collections of different outputs generated during
processing, sometimes requiring a bit of jumping around to fully

So please attach the complete config.log as a text attachment, or post
it on some storage web site if too large, so others can review it and
assist you.

And as usual, please attach cygcheck -svr output as a text attachment,
so support folks can see what tools releases you are running.

As the current release is the only release which is supported and can be
fixed, you may need to keep a number of frozen releases around to avoid
any build issues, or rely on crouchingtigerhiddenfruitbat.org packages.
That may cause issues when others try to run your package on more recent

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
