When you are building another version of a Cygwin package, if you have not done
so already, it is worth installing cygport, all its dependencies, other build
tools suggested in the package maintainer docs, and use those to download the
latest Cygwin package source, in case there are patches provided which make the
package build or run better under Cygwin.
It is then easy to create another package-version directory into which you can
copy the .cygport file and modify it to download, build, test, and install the
other version of the package, optionally with any provided patches if still
required.
