Heads-up: Packaging clash, CGF please note

I've just discovered (using "cygcheck -cv") that the following files were
missing from my system:


After some investigation, it turns out that this was because these files
were present in more than one package, and upgrading removed them.  In
particular, "/usr/bin/c++filt.exe" was present in both "gcc-3.2-3"
(uninstalled) and "binutils-20030901-1"; "/usr/include/pty.h" was present
in both "inetutils-1.3.2-24" (uninstalled) and "cygwin-1.5.5-1"; and
"/usr/lib/libiberty.a" was present in *three* packages: "gcc-3.3.1-2"
(uninstalled), "binutils-20030901-1", and "cygwin-1.5.5-1".  FWIW, I'm
still trying to figure out what happened with libtermcap.a.

The libiberty.a clash ("binutils" vs. "cygwin") is still present FWICS.
Just a heads-up.
