bzip2 provides the bzip2.exe / bunzip2.exe executables, a 
patent-unencumbered but highly effective compression tool.  This release 
is built against the cygiwn-1.5.x kernel; it will not work with 1.3.22.


- Now explicitly calls setmode(*,O_BINARY) on stdout/stdin
   (e.g. piping compressed data)
- Recompiled against cygwin-1.5.2 kernel.
- documentation moved to /usr/share/*
