[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] Updated Base-files-3.8-3

This package is for Cygwin 1.7.

Change Log
    * Ensure that the destination directory exists during postinstall
      - Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes
    * The skeleton files are copied even if the the mkdir has
      failed.  This happens to network users who install Cygwin while
      connected, with HOME on a network drive, and then later use their
      laptop while disconnected.  In that case the skeleton files are not
      copied, a warning issued and HOME set to "${TEMP}", "${TMP}", /tmp,
      or (finally) / - Pierre A. Humblet
    * Update to Cygwin 1.7 version - Herb Maeder
