RE: cygport: how to install package sources for debugging without recompiling?

Dear Brian,

As far as I can tell these files only contain sources, but nothing which would add debug info to stripped dlls:

$ tar -xavf mingw64-x86_64-runtime-debuginfo-6.0.0-1.tar.xz

$ find . -type f | sed -e 's/.*\.//' | sort -u

the MinGW support in Cygwin has very substantially improved in the last years, but indeed many -debuginfo packages for MinGW libs are missing.
