I've installed a new version of binutils in sourceware:/cygwin/latest/binutils.

Changes:

- Fixes dllwrap problems found in binutils-20000625.

- Library search order has been changed to find dlls last when linking.

- Probably other random fixes or bugs have been introduced in the course
  of normal binutils development.  I'm not aware of any specific improvements
  but there was a report of ordinals not working in def files.  That has
  not been fixed in this release.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
choose a mirror site for your download.  The 'sources' site is badly
overloaded.  The mirrors below have the latest version of this package:

ftp://ftp.sunsite.utk.edu/pub/cygwin/ (US)
ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/cygwin/ (Austria)
ftp://sunsite.org.uk/Mirrors/sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/cygwin/ (UK)

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it may download the whole cygwin net release again.  After
this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@sources.redhat.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
