I've updated the version of inetutils in cygwin/latest to 1.3.2-16.

This package is created for running under Cygwin 1.3.6.  It's untested
under earlier versions of Cygwin.

Version 1.3.2-16 containes the following changes:

- In rexecd, cleanup sources to use Cygwins setuid features.  Rexecd
  now works but after finishing the command, some clients complain
  about `Connection reset by peer'.

- Thanks to Chuck Higgins <chuck.higgins@ntlworld.com> for:
  Eliminate glitches in rexecd/rexecd.c and talk/msgs.c to allow
  compiling with latest Cygwin again.

- Thanks to Enrico Bernardini <enrico@adm.Unipi.IT> for:
  In inetd, fix using wrong datatype (short) for a PID value, resulting
  in inetd not restarting service when PID is out of range for short.

- In iu-config add option processing for the following
  options:
  --debug  -d   Enable shell's debug output.
  --yes    -y   Answer all questions with "yes" automatically.
  --no     -n   Answer all questions with "no" automatically.

- iu-config is now also copied to /etc/postinstall.  This means, from
  now on the config files in /etc are created by Cygwin's setup.exe on
  installing/updating inetutils-1.3.2.  The files aren't overwritten
  if they already exist, though.

- Change Makefiles and configure files to install everything now correctly
  in one go.  Explicitly exclude syslogd when building for Cygwin.  This
  excludes syslog.conf.5 from getting installed, too.

- The description of the configure options used for the Cygwin build at the
  end of the /usr/doc/Cygwin/inetutils-1.3.2.README file is correct now.

=========================================================================
			  IMPORTANT NOTE:

- When updating inetutils, take care that inetd.exe and subsequent
  processes don't run anymore.

=========================================================================

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.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
