Hi Mark,

: Below is a minor update to bfd/coff-go32.c to update the comment at 
: the top and the copyright.

: ! /* BFD back-end for Intel 386 COFF files (DJGPP variant).
: !    Copyright 1990-1994, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
:      Written by DJ Delorie.

There is a problem with this.  The FSF lawyers have said that date
ranges are not sufficiently clear, and the copyright years should be
spelt out individually.  Thus I think you ought to change your patch
to:

: ! /* BFD back-end for Intel 386 COFF files (DJGPP variant).
: !    Copyright 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1999, 2000 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
:      Written by DJ Delorie.

Cheers
	Nick
