I just uploaded a coreutils package to the release area.  It's based
on the latest coreutils-6.22.  I did not apply Eric's patches from the
32 bit 6.15 release, because they didn't apply cleanly, and some of
them seem to be not necessary anymore.  If you encounter problems
with this package, it's probably due to either case insensitivity
issues, or the fact that "/" and "//" are different on Cygwin.

Eric, any chance to grab my coreutils-6.22-1-src.tar.bz2 package and
see how your patches still are required?
