Updated: {mingw-bzip2/mingw-libbz2_1}-1.0.5-2

mingw-bzip2 provides the static library, DLL import library, and header 
files for building non-cygwin applications (like setup.exe) which need 
access to bzip2 compression algorithms.  mingw-libbz2_1 provides the 
corresponding DLL.

The libraries in the mingw-* packages are built using the standard 
windows runtime library and NOT cygwin, and are used by setup.exe among 
other tools.  No executables (like bzip2.exe) are provided by these 
packages.  Use the cygwin versions instead, or go to the bzip2 homepage 
at http://www.bzip2.org/ for native windows executables.


* Update to new upstream release
   addresses security issues CAN-2005-1260, CAN-2005-0953
