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

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

CHANGES (from cygutils-1.4.2-1)
* Fix longstanding bug in mkshortcut, in which failure was
  reported even on success (Andy Koppe).
* --help, --license, --usage, and --version output now goes
  to stdout instead of stderr
* Add standard command line options to cygdrop (--version,
  --help, --license, --usage)
* Various internal code cleanups

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?
