[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: gcc 2.95.3-4, binutils 20010425-1

I've made new versions of gcc and binutils available for download.

The new gcc release fixes a problem where /usr/local/lib was not being
searched by default.  It also forces a search of /usr/lib/w32api when
linking regardless of whether -nostdlib is specified or not.

binutils is basically an update release but there is one additional
feature.  'ld' searches both /usr/lib and /usr/lib/w32api by default.
Hopefully, this will rectify some of the dlltool problems that are
being reported.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
Note that we have recently stopped downloads from

need to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US,

In Germany,

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.
