[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: cygutils-1.4.6-1

Cygutils is a collection of useful(?) tools for the cygwin
platform. This is a bugfix release and a content update.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

CHANGES (from cygutils-1.4.4-1)
* conv: no longer distribute as dos2unix, unix2dos, u2d, or d2u.
  Those programs now available from the separate dos2unix package.
* ascii: by default, now only prints characters 0..127. Use new
  option --extended/-e for old behavior, printing characters 0..255.
  See this thread:
* cygstart: Fix --reference. Allow relative paths (enables, e.g.
  'cygstart calc'). Reported by Ken Hirsch.
* cygdrop: Minor fixes (Christian Franke)
* mkshortcut: Minor fixes (Jon TURNEY)
* Updated licenses for all apps to GPLv3+ (with permission from
  all original contributors).

TODO (call for patches):
* Update, mkshortcut.c, readshortcut.c to use cygwin-1.7
  cygwin_conv_path instead of deprecated cygwin_conv_to_win32_path.

* Update (some?) utilities to handle unicode filenames, similar to
  IWAMURO Motonori's work on cygstart. Which utilities need this?
  mkshortcut and lpr, probably. Any others?
