I've made a new version of binutils available for download.  This is a
refresh from the FSF sources, with one addition -- I've changed the
default alignment (COFF_DEFAULT_SECTION_ALIGNMENT_POWER) from 2 to 4.
This is apparently required for SSE and 128 bit data types.

This means that this version of binutils is incompatible with versions
of gcc prior to 2.95.3-10.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.  You'll find
binutils listed in the "Devel" category.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it 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.  Of
course, it always pays to check the mailing list archives prior to posting
to save yourself the embarrassment of asking a question that has been
asked multiple times before.
