Hmm, actually it seems the newest coreutils builds out of the box on cygwin
with a minor tweak. It does seem to depend on libiconv, so after that's
updated for cygwin 1.5.0, I'll release a test version of coreutils.
IIRC, there were a few modification CGF did to the former subpackages of
coreutils. I believe some of them are still needed. Grab the stock
source tarballs of each version and the corresponding cygwin source
pacakge. Run diff between the two and you'll see just what I mean.
Perhaps Chris has the patches stored somewhere? Just thought you should
know, so that we don't get any regressions...
I'd also reccommend grabbing the coreutils SRPM from Red Hat rawhide and
see what relevant patches it contains (IMNSHO it contains quite a few
nice ones). There are some bug fixes in it as well. Just a thought,
