Updated: clisp-2.41-1 for cygwin

I've released the new upstream clisp-2.41 for cygwin.

./configure --fsstnd=redhat --with-dynamic-ffi  \
	--with-module=rawsock --with-module=dirkey  \
	--with-module=bindings/win32 --with-module=berkeley-db \
	--with-module=pcre --with-module=postgresql \
  	--with-module=fastcgi --with-module=zlib  \
	--with-module=gdi \
	--prefix=/usr --build build

http://clisp.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*/clisp/clisp/src/NEWS

Cygwin Changes:
I've added experimentally my gdi module, which I might drop later.
libsvm is not yet in, as pari. You can easily add this and the other 
modules to commercial packages via the clisp linkkit.
The next cygwin release will probably contain libsvm and gtk2.

A new upstream release with minor feature fixes.

10/01/06 - Improve user interface of solve command.
10/01/06 - Add alternate command syntax for sum and product commands.
            "sum x = 0 to 10" works the same as "sum x 0 10".
10/08/06 - Add "-r" option, which disables readline input processing.
10/08/06 - Corrected "tests/cubic.in" and fixed incomplete
            simplification in complex root calculation.
10/10/06 - Got rid of the special "temp" variable.
10/11/06 - Got rid of the special "answer" and "integer" variables.
            They are now normal variables.
10/14/06 - Fix optimize command.  Now works 100% properly for
            "tests/cubic.in".
10/16/06 - Made HTML division lines look better using "&mdash;".
10/17/06 - Made list_equation() and list_expression() more efficient by
            converting the strcat(3)s to strcpy(3)s with a macro.

Updated: findutils-4.3.1-2


A new release of findutils, 4.3.1-2, is available, replacing 4.3.1-1 as
current.

NEWS:
=====
This is a minor patch release.  It adds a proposed patch being discussed
upstream that fixes behavior with 'find -prune' that works with
/bin/oldfind but was failing in /bin/find.  Although this release is still
marked beta upstream, it has proven to be more reliable than the stable
4.2.x series on cygwin.  As a beta release, it adds new optimization
features that might be withdrawn depending on feedback received.  Upstream
news since is available in /usr/share/doc/findutils-4.3.1/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system.  The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria (such
as a filename pattern).  The xargs utility builds and executes command
lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names generated
by the find command).  The locate utility scans a database of filenames
and displays matches.  The updatedb utility builds the database for locate.

UPDATE:
=======
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'findutils' from
the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).

Updated [experimental]: bash-3.2.3-5


A new release of bash, 3.2.3-5, is now available for experimental use,
replacing 3.2-4. Version 3.1-9 remains as the current version for now.

NEWS:
=====
This is a minor patch update to a new upstream release.  There are likely
to be a few upstream official patches in the next couple of weeks, so I am
leaving it experimental for a while; this particular packaging adds
official patches 2 (Russian translation fix) and 3 (=~ operator fix).  The
other difference between -4 and -5 is that I added another cygwin-specific
patch so that the new igncr shell option also controls whether \r is
ignored when sourcing a file.

There are a few things you should be aware of before using this version:
1. When using binary mounts, cygwin programs try to emulate Linux.  Bash
on Linux does not understand \r\n line endings, but interprets the \r
literally, which leads to syntax errors or odd variable assignments.
Therefore, you will get the same behavior on Cygwin binary mounts by default.
2. d2u is your friend.  You can use it to convert any problematic script
into binary line endings.
3. Cygwin text mounts automatically work with either line ending style,
because the \r is stripped before bash reads the file.  If you absolutely
must use files with \r\n line endings, consider mounting the directory
where those files live as a text mount.  However, text mounts are not as
well tested or supported on the cygwin mailing list, so you may encounter
other problems with other cygwin tools in those directories.
4. This version of bash has a cygwin-specific shell option, named "igncr"
to force bash to ignore \r, independently of cygwin's mount style.  As of
bash-3.2.3-5, it controls regular scripts, command substitution, and

Updated: coreutils-6.4-1


A new release of coreutils, 6.4-1, has been promoted from experimental to
current use.  Version 5.97-1 is now the previous version.

NEWS:
=====
This is a new upstream release of coreutils.  It depends on features that
were only added in cygwin-1.5.21-1.  Upstream changes from 5.97 are
attached below; see also /usr/share/doc/coreutils-6.4/.

This release features a major overhaul in file traversal algorithms, by
emulating openat(2) using /proc/self/fd until such time as cygwin provides
openat natively.  It also provides a few new applications, such as 'shuf'.

DESCRIPTION:
============
GNU coreutils provides a collection of commonly used utilities essential
to a standard POSIX environment.  It comprises the former textutils,
sh-utils, and fileutils packages.  The following executables are included:

[ base64 basename cat chgrp chmod chown chroot cksum comm cp csplit cut
date dd df dir dircolors dirname du echo env expand expr factor false fmt
fold gkill groups head hostid hostname id install join link ln logname ls
md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mv nice nl nohup od paste pathchk pinky pr
