Re: binutils-2.13.tar.bz2

Hi, all.

I may have missed the e-mails discussing this, but is
there a reason why the binutils-2.13 tarball and upgrade
patch are only posted in bz2 format? I found, built and used bzip2, but it seems inconvenient to expect the world
to have to do that.

Because the makefile currently makes bz2 tarballs? :)  I'll put up
gzipped versions in a little bit, thanks for the reminder.
Have a look at what GDB does here.

I changed the release process, and top level, so that it can create a simple .tar file. The .bz2 and .gz are then created by hand (but note that it doesn't use `gzip < .tar > .tar.gz2`).

Not having to do `bunzip2 ; gzip` carved a suprising amount of time off the release process!

See ``Create compressed versions of the release''.
