inetutils packaging problem

In the inetutils -25 package which just showed up on ftp, your tarball 
contains paths with ".\" prefixes.  I suspect that your <source> 
argument for tar was a "." instead of "*".  Unfortunately setup doesn't 
handle this case right for cygwin-style "bind" mounts and ends up 
putting contents intended for /usr/{bin,lib} in C:\Cygwin\usr\{bin,lib} 
instead of properly mapping /usr/{bin,lib} to C:\Cygwin\{bin,lib}.


P.S. - I'll take a look at what Gerrit's got so far, but it should 
probably be ok.
