I've installed a new version of binutils in sourceware:/cygwin/latest/binutils.
- This is an updated version of binutils built from the latest available
(as of 25-June) binutils sources from CVS. This version has fixes from

everything later. The setup.log file contains diagnostics that will
be helpful if your installation failed for some reason.
Note that, if you do not use the mirror site above, the binutils files may
take a while to propagate to other mirror sites.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin

This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
