I'm having trouble doing it the right way: setup.exe won't recognise/list anything under
xorg-server-1.20.0-2.x86_64/dist/xorg-server/
and I don't find a detailed documentation to go from `cygport package` to actually installing the generated packages.

So I tried 2 things:
  - manually unpacking the generated packages, moving the binaries into place an applying the post-install scripts by hand
  - copying the `inst/` contents to the cygwin root (setting the `DESTDIR` envvar didn't seem to have any effect on `cygport install`)

Still the same crash in both cases.

That said, from the docs at "Running a local build" in
https://x.cygwin.com/docs/cg/prog-build-native.html
it shouldn't be necessary to install it into the system, right?
