The mingw-bzip2 package has been updated to version 1.0.6-2. bzip2
is a patent-unencumbered but highly effective compression library;
mingw-bzip2 is a version built using the standard windows runtime
library and NOT cygwin; it is used by setup.exe among other tools.

[[ compiled using mingw-gcc-4.7.3-1 ]]

CHANGES since 1.0.6-1
* Update to latest upstream version
* Rely on cygport to autogenerate setup.hint files
  + Moved to 'Devel' category instead of 'Mingw'
* Build with mingw-gcc-4.7.3 toolchain
* First cygwin64 build
