Ooooh dear! I've been playing with Cygwin from CVS (the upcoming 1.5.0) and I've
accidentally built against it. I'll fix this now, expect updated packages to be
on some mirrors in a couple of hours.

BTW, it would seem that my "extensive" testing of LibXSLT/LibXML2 with DocBook
wasn't very extensive, as it fails a very easy conversion (XML->HTML). I'm
working on this now to try and see why it's failing for practically every test I
do with it. Sigh.
