RE: Binutils alignment and libjava

I don't know.  I don't really know much about java and I didn't make the
change.  It didn't change the testsuite results.  There may have been 
some discussion on when the change went in.

Is not having hash synchronization going to impair the ability to 
compile and run java apps on cygwin?  Just wondering how big of a loss 
that is.  Also, I was wondering if you noticed any bizarre behaviour 
with the install scripts for libjava?  I was runing a make install about 
a week ago, and it wasn't recognizing the exe extention, which caused 
some problems with temp files.
