The package base-files has been updated to version 4.3-3.  This is a
bugfix release.

Change Log
----------
4.3-3 (bugfix release)
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: Fix a bug so that the system variable
      CYGWIN_USEWINPATH actually does what it was supposed to do.
4.3-2 (bugfix/feature release)
    * etc/defaults/etc/skel/.bashrc: Remove outdated comments on
      completion and mention the bash_completion package as a
      prerequisite.  See cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2016-03/msg00207.html
    * etc/postinstall/base-files-profile.sh: If a non-default file is
      kept, show a diff to the default version if /bin/diff is
      installed and the target is a plain file.
    * etc/postinstall/base-files-profile.sh: Do not touch file before
      installing so the modes are kept intact, like cygport is already
      doing for some time.  Reported by Christian Franke, see
      cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2016-09/msg00059.html
4.3-1 (feature release)
    * Cygwin.bat: Add to base-files.  This version is independent of
      the actual install path, see:
      cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2016-08/msg00617.html
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: Allow the use of the unaltered
      existing system PATH by setting the system variable
      CYGWIN_USEWINPATH.
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: avoid second invocation of
      /usr/bin/hostname.  Reported by Helmut Karlowski, see
      cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2015-12/msg00080.html
    * etc/postinstall/base-files-mketc.sh (WINETC): Use /proc/cygdrive
      prefixed path which keeps working even if the user changes the
      /cygdrive prefix after installation.
