* routine update

* removed --with-offixe from configure as it needs --with-dragndrop which
  doesn't work on cygwin right now

* this version uses again the original package-get.el as my local patch
  doesn't cleanly apply because of a major update to the package lisp stuff

* explicitely include --with-dialogs=motif when configuring

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on

the above mentioned package from the 'Editors' category.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
