I've made a new version of 'findutils' available for installation.  This
updates the package to the latest version available from alpha.gnu.org.
This version is notable in that it seems to properly support files
greater than 2G.  It also includes a fix for the missing "tempfile"
program in updatedb.  It uses mktemp instead of "tempfile", although an
error message still erroneously mentions "tempfile".

I normally don't like release packages that are in "alpha" but since
this package built OOTB and removed the obsolete use of "tempfile",
I made an exception in this case.

For a brief descripton of this package, and listing of the files it
contains, see http://cygwin.com/packages/findutils .

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.  findutils
should be updated automatically, assuming that you are using a mirror
which has grabbed the latest version from sourceware.org.
