Cygutils is a collection of useful(?) tools for the cygwin
platform. This is a feature enhancement release.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-1 ]]

This release is taken from the cygwin-1.7-specific 
development branch (cygutils-1.4.1 will no longer compile
on legacy versions of cygwin; it requires functions noly
added in the newer cygwin kernels).

CHANGES (from cygutils-1.4.1-1)
* Fix bug in mkshortcut (Reported by Ken Brown; Patch by Dave Korn)

TODO (call for patches):
* Update lpr.cc and mkshortcut.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?
