I build the cygwin version of binutils from the latest cvs version of binutils.

If I didn't do this then I wouldn't get any of the auto-import work, which was kinda
the whole reason for the release.

If you are producing patches they should be against the latest cvs version as well.

And this is surprising?  Binutils 2.11.2 was released on 2001-06-19.  I'll leave
it to your imagination as to when binutils-20010425 was released.
