The cygwin gsl package (GNU Scientific Library) has been updated to 
1.8-2. For the announcement of gsl version 1.8 See (1).

The homepage for the GSL is http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/

The 1.8-2 update fixes two packaging errors. The gsl-randist.exe program
was missing from gsl-apps and the missing dependency on lapack
was added to setup.hint. Thanks to Thomas Demmer (2) for the heads-up.

NOTE: Starting from gsl-1.6-2,if you want to use the GSL, your path
should contain /usr/lib/lapack. This directory is added by
/etc/profile.d/lapack.sh. If you use the start-up scripts from the
base-files packages this script is executed automatically.
