The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** XFree86-bin-4.3.0-5
*** XFree86-prog-4.3.0-8


1) xc/lib/Xt/Initialize.c,IntrinsicP.h xc/config/cf/cygwin.rules - Add a 
very nice hack to allow Xt to be built as a shared library.  The fix 
exports _XtInherit as a data symbol and adds a bit of assembly code to 
the data section that redirects calls to the XtInherit function in the 
Xt DLL.  (Ralf Habacker)

2) General - Recompile all libraries and executables with Xt, Xaw, Xaw6, 
and Xmu built as shared libraries.  This cuts the size of the 
XFree86-bin package from around 10 MiB to 4 MiB.  (Harold L Hunt II)
