I've updated the make package to include the make.info files that
I had accidentally dropped from the last release.

There are no changes to make.exe itself.

To update your installation, CREATE AN EMPTY DIRECTORY, cd to it, and
download the latest version of setup.exe from the cygwin/latest
directory at a cygwin mirror site near you.  Then type:

setup make

Answer the questions as you did when you first installed cygwin.  This
procedure will only update the make package.  If you have not previously
used the new setup.exe program to install a version of cygwin, you
probably will need to install the entire cygwin package for correct

Once the setup is complete you may remove this newly created directory.
It will contain the setup.exe program, a setup log file, and the
make tar file.  None of these are needed for further operation of make
but you can keep them around if you are interested in reinstalling
everything later.  The setup.log file contains diagnostics that will
be helpful if your installation failed for some reason.

As usual, I have only updated sourceware.  The make files will take a
while to propagate to the mirror sites.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@sourceware.cygnus.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
