I just updated the attr package and the included libattr1 and
libattr-devel packages to version 2.4.46-1.

This is the latest upstream version with all relevant patches as in
Fedora 16.  The Cygwin package required a couple of additional patches,
especially in terms of the installation procedure.  The Makefiles and
installer scripts are a crude mix of autoconf+libtool+handmade in a
rather fragile way.

This package now uses the cygport packaging method.

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.
