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

[[ compiled using gcc-4.5.3-3 ]]

CHANGES (from cygutils-1.4.6-1)
* Integrate cygstart with FD.o menu and mimetype system.
  (Yaakov Selkowitz)
* Remove ascii utility; replaced by separate package derived
  from ESR's implementation http://catb.org/~esr/ascii/
* Remove realpath utility; replaced by new implementation
  provided by coreutils (8.15 and above).

TODO (call for patches):
* Update lpr.cc, mkshortcut.c, readshortcut.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?
