Sorry for not getting back quickly, I do not read this list frequently.
Uploaded rpm.exe to ftp://ftp.ultra.net/pub/eugene/cygwin/bin/rpm.exe .
Althow some ^M handlening has been taken care of, still ^M are not
allowed within %file section of  a .spec file for this rpm binary. It is
recommended to use a text editor that does not use ^M. For example
native NT version of xemacs.

To get all defaults compiled in this binary displayed, run

rpm --showrc

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
