Historical reasons I assume. It doesn't actually matter as long as the
directory has no influence on setup categorizing. If you like I move
it out of X11.
Other than that, the package has two packaging bugs. The paths are
stored in the tar file with leading "./", which confuses setup.exe.
Also, the executables in usr/bin don't have a .exe suffix.
!!! I just found that the new lilypond package has the "./" bug as well.
I removed the package from cygwin.com for now. Can you please
provide new packages? Thanks.
