Oh boy.  I started off by following the stuff at gentoo-wiki, but I had
to change a lot of stuff because it kept griping about things like not
being able to find cygwin-binaries and other crap like that.  I'm going
to have to start over.  Give me a few days to get it set back up to this
point.  In the meantime, is there anything I can do to avoid that
missing keywork mask?  The ebuilds in the cygwin overlay expect source
tarballs that don't seem to be available anymore...
