[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mingw-bzip2-1.0.3-2, mingw-libbz2_1-1.0.3-2

mingw-bzip2 provides the static library, DLL import library, and header files for building non-cygwin applications (like setup.exe) which need access to bzip2 compression algorithms. mingw-libbz2_1 provides the corresponding DLL.

The libraries in the mingw-* packages are built using the standard windows runtime library and NOT cygwin, and are used by setup.exe among other tools. No executables (like bzip2.exe) are provided by these packages. Use the cygwin versions instead, or go to the bzip2 homepage at for native windows executables.


* Incorporate Debian bugfixes
* Add .info documentation
* Switch to cygport build framework

* Unlike the simultaneously released (cygwin)bzip2 packages, I did not split development files into separate package. That is because without the development files, mingw-bzip2 would be mostly empty, AND the only reason to install mingw-* packages at all is to do development using the libraries -- e.g. building setup.exe, etc.
