I've made a new version of binutils available for installation.  This is
a refresh against the current CVS.

A partial list of changes is included after the unsubscribe info.  This list
comes from three binutils NEWS files.

* Add support for delay importing to dlltool.  Use the --output-delaylib <file>
   switch to create a delay-import library.  The resulting app will load the dll
   as soon as the first function is called.  It will link to __delayLoadHelper2()
   from the static delayimp library, which will import LoadLibraryA and
   GetProcAddress from kernel32.

* Extend .def file syntax by '== <ID>' for imports and exports. This allows
  to alias the import/export table name written in PE image.

* Add --exclude-all-symbols option to PE based linkers.  This prevents all
  symbols from automatically being exported.

* Improvements in pseudo-reloc for PE targets.
