IMO we should have a fully self-hosted distribution. At the moment, with
the _single_ exception of postgresql, every package here can be rebuilt
from source, to a version equivalent to what the package maintainer
posted, on a cygwin system, with the tools that the distribution has. So
yes, UPX should be a package before it's used to make packages.

I vote for including UPX... and Lapo makes two. Do we need a third? And
are there any objections?
