I just updated the patch utility to the latest stable upstream
version 2.6.1.

The Cygwin package contains a few patches in terms of binary vs.
textmode handling.  It seems to work fine in my testing, but if you
encounter some strangeness, please report to the mailing list
cygwin AT cygwin DOT com.

This package is now also packed using cygport.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
