Updated: {bzip2/libbz2_1/libbz2-devel}-1.0.5-3

The bzip2 package has been updated to version 1.0.5-3. bzip2 is a patent-unencumbered but highly effective compression library, and also provides the bzip2.exe / bunzip2.exe utilities. This is a packaging update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-3 ]]

This will most likely be the final bzip2 update for the cygwin-1.5 distribution; future development will continue with bzip2-1.0.5-10 for cygwin-1.7.

CHANGES since 1.0.5-2
o build with stock cygport 0.4.3
o import fix from mingw-bzip2 (it's a win32-, not cygwin-,
  specific fix, but I like to keep the source code synced).
o update hint files
