| The problem with the cabextract package was the same as the problems
| with all of Jari's other packages: the build script had errors. For
| example, you cannot download the -src of cabextract and build a new
| version for distribution. If you do, the build script within that new
| -src package will be called cabextract-0.6.1-2-0.6.1-2.sh, or some such.
Build problems addressed, package recompiled and newly packaged. Please review
lynx -dump http://tierra.dyndns.org:81/cygwin/cabextract/get.sh | sh
Leave out the "| sh" to review the script before running it.
