 * Switch to version-less .cygport file.
 * Rebuild against libsasl2_3.
 * Update to db4.8.
 * Include a partial fix for UNC paths. This fixes the issues
   reported in http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-05/msg00382.html but
   does not allow UNC paths on the command-line as described in
   http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-01/msg00061.html. Using UNC
   paths as command-line arguments requires teaching libapr1 about
   UNC paths for Cygwin.

See CHANGES (URL below) for more information about the differences
between 1.7.9 and previous Subversion releases.

IMPORTANT: Please read the release notes (URL below) before
upgrading from a previous major release. 1.7 includes a new working
copy format with a manual upgrade operation. This will render your
working copy unusable with previous major releases. Furthermore,
there are some issues trying to upgrade corrupt working copies.
