Are there particular configuration options you have to use to enable
the extended character support?  My current configure line is:

./configure \
      --prefix=/usr \
      --sysconfdir=/etc \
      --libexecdir='$(sbindir)' \
      --localstatedir=/var \
      --datadir='$(prefix)/share' \
      --mandir='$(prefix)/share/man' \
      --enable-multibyte \
      --without-x \
      --enable-gui=no \
      --with-features=huge

Cheers!

Chris

[1.7] Updated: m4-1.4.13-1


A new release of m4, 1.4.13-1, is available for those testing cygwin 1.7,
leaving 1.4.10b-2 as previous.

NEWS
====
This is a new upstream release.  The previous version, 1.4.10b, was a beta
preview of the eventual m4 1.6, and as such, has some optimizations that
make it faster than 1.4.13 in some situations.  However, the benefits of
using 1.4.13 include new stack overflow detection (thanks to libsigsegv),
and some bug fixes not present in 1.4.10b.  An excerpt from the NEWS file
is attached; see also /usr/share/doc/m4/.

You must rebuild from source if you want the experimental changeword
feature enabled, as using it can slow down normal operation, and since it
will disappear from the eventual m4 2.0.

DESCRIPTION
===========
m4 is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro processor. It is
mostly SVR4 compatible although it has some extensions (for example,
handling more than 9 positional parameters to macros). GNU m4 also has
built-in functions for including files, running shell commands, doing
arithmetic, etc.

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 'm4' from the

[1.7] Updated: rdiff-backup-1.2.8-3 -- incremental remote backup/mirror

This is a bug fix release that adds a Cygwin patch to call
setlocale(LC_ALL, '') to pick up the user's locale settings. This
enables rdiff-backup to work when file names include multi-byte
characters.

DESCRIPTION:
============
rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a
network. The target directory ends up a copy of the source
directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special
subdirectory of that target directory, so you can still recover
files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best features
of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also preserves
subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid
ownership, modification times, extended attributes, acls, and
resource forks. Also, rdiff-backup can operate in a bandwidth
efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use
rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive up to a remote
location, and only the differences will be transmitted. Finally,
rdiff-backup is easy to use and settings have sensical defaults.

DOWNLOAD:
=========
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to
find a mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to
you: http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html

Updated: {libtool/libltdl7}-2.2.7a-3

GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the
complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable
interface.

This is a bugfix update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

Unless there are serious issues with this package, it is likely to be
the last version of libtool released for cygwin-1.5.  This release
differs from the simultaneously-released libtool-2.2.7a-12 for
cygwin-1.7 in only trivial ways. 

CHANGES SINCE 2.2.7a-2
=================================
* Corrected incompatibility with older (pre-1.8) automake

Test results -- old tests:
All 113 tests passed
2 tests were not run

Test results -- new tests:
78 tests behaved as expected.
8 tests were skipped.

(no regressions from 2.2.7a-2)

[1.7] Updated: asciidoc-8.4.2-2


A new version of the asciidoc package, asciidoc 8.4.2-2, is now available
for download for those testing cygwin 1.7, replacing 8.4.2-1.  I have left
asciidoc 8.3.5-1 as previous for cygwin 1.7 and current for cygwin 1.5.

NEWS:
=====
This is a minor package update - it changes the default vim filetype
associations of existing .txt files to first check whether the file
appears to contain asciidoc markup, thus avoiding a huge processor load
when viewing an strace file that happened to be named .txt.  See
also the package documentation in /usr/share/doc/asciidoc/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing short documents, articles,
books and UNIX man pages. AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML and
DocBook markups using the asciidoc(1) command. AsciiDoc is highly
configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax and the backend output
markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be
customized and extended by the user.

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 'asciidoc' from
the 'Devel' category.

[1.7] Updated: diffstat-1.47-1


A new release of diffstat, 1.47-1, is available for those testing cygwin
1.7, leaving 1.46-1 as the previous version and for cygwin 1.5 users.

NEWS:
=====
This is a new upstream release.  From the CHANGES file, the changes since
1.46 are:

29-Mar-2009
	diffstat 1.47

	modify to work with patch ".rej" files, which do not have a header to
	tell which file is affected.

	fix typo in usage message (reports by Moritz Barsnick, John McNamara,
	Richard Quadling).

See also /usr/share/doc/diffstat/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
diffstat reads the output of diff and displays a histogram of the
insertions, deletions, and modifications per-file. It is useful for
reviewing large, complex patch files.

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.

[1.7] Updated: GraphicsMagick-1.3.5-3


Version 1.3.5-3 of 
   GraphicsMagick
   libGraphicsMagick-devel
   libGraphicsMagick3
   perl-Graphics-Magick

have been uploaded for cygwin-1.7

GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing. 
It provides a robust and efficient collection of tools and
libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an 
image in over 88 major formats including important formats like 
DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PNM, and TIFF.

This version is aligned with the last stable upstream release,
and it was built with gcc-4.3.2-2.

Best Regards

Updated: csih-0.1.9-2

csih (cygwin-service-installation-helper) provides a library
of shell functions that can be used by other cygwin packages
that provide servers and daemons. It can assist in various
service installation tasks, such as:

* identifying the underlying Windows OS
* detecting whether a "privileged user" exists and what its
  name is (that is, a user account with enhanced privileges
  necessary for some services)
* creating a privileged user if one doesn't already exist
  (assuming the caller has permissions to create new users)
* creating "normal" users
* obtaining the (localized) name of well known account
  (Guest, Administrator)

It is currently used by inetutils(iu-config, syslogd-config),
openssh (ssh-host-config, ssh-user-config), sspi(sspi-config),
sysvinit(init-config), and various others.  csih should not be
used directly; instead, config scripts like the ones mentioned
above should 'source' the csih script, and then use the
functions provided.

This is a bugfix and feature enhancement. This release is for
both cygwin-1.5 and for cygwin-1.7.

Updated: inetutils-1.5-6

Inetutils provides common networking clients and servers,
including the inetd super-server, telnetd and telnet,
ftpd and ftp, rshd and rsh, rlogind and rlogin, talkd and
talk, tftpd and tftp, rexecd (but no rexec), uucpd (but no
uucp client), rcp, and syslogd.

This is a bugfix release. This release is for both cygwin-1.5
and for cygwin-1.7.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

CHANGES (since 1.5-4)
========================
* iu-config uses new facilities provided by csih-0.1.9-2
  to enable so-called "unattended" installation. See below.
* Fixes a problem with ftpd in active mode, as reported by
  Curt Gran: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2009-03/msg00299.html

KNOWN ISSUES
=======================
* postinstall script may fail when run automatically by
  setup.exe for cygwin-1.5.  This is not an issue for cygwin-1.7's
  setup.  If installing on a legacy system, run the postinstall
  script manually from an Administrator account:
    Administrator$ /etc/postinstall/inetutils.sh.done
  See announcement for csih-0.1.9-2 for more information.
* talkd (possibly just firewall issues) -- see README
* anonymous ftp has not been tested
* rexec does not honor ~/.netrc. This is a possible issue in
  cygwin's rcmd() implementation.  rexec does honor $REXEC_USER
