I've put together an update for iperf, with no significant changes

I've also bumped to version 2.0.5. There is a fork (sourceforge project iperf2 instead of iperf) with releases to 2.0.8, but I'm not comfortable
uploading that since one of the changelog entries is an incompatible

follow-up with an ITP for iperf3 which I recommend having as a separate

build fine. Have you tested it?
on 64 bit I see

 $ iperf -s -D

and 32bit strace...

--- Process 8552, exception 80000001 at 73006661

I did test both the 32 and 64 bit version, but not with the -D flag, just interactively. Thanks for pointing out that gap. I only had a chance to look briefly at the failure, but it occurs on 2.0.5 32 and 64-bit builds, as well as the existing 2.0.4 32-bit package. Since it's strictly not a regression, I'd push for it not holding up the update if everything else work, but is still be a nice to have that I'll look at.

As another packaging question, I get that cygport is a build helper not package management, but is there an easy way to install a resulting binary package on a local system that ties in with the setup.exe packaging tracking? I'd like to be able to actually test packages in deployed state with and without the debug information present, and be able to subsequently remove it as well, for which tar xfJ doesn't do such a hot job.
