Best documentation for how to use cygport

What's the best documentation to read to understand how to use cygport
to build packages?

I am trying to use it to build Lua 5.3 and some modules.  I think I
bashed the Lua 5.2 cygport file into the right shape to build 5.3
correctly.  But I don't know how to use the result of that to build
other modules that depend on it.

I need to give gcc and ld the right flags.  Do I use package config for
that?  Do I statically define the right flags?  Can I import variables
from the 5.3 cygport file into other cygport files?  It doesn't like
"inherit lua53" at the top so I don't know what to do now.
