I found out, that line.exe is in the package util-linux-2.17.2-1.
But I automatically got the newer version util-linux-2.21-1 from the mirror, where line.exe is _not_ included:
Ok, I will downgrade to util-linux-2.17.2-1 to get line.exe.
May I ask you to have a look at this to save line.exe for future releases?
Thank you & regards,
