The lesstif-0.94.4-1 'test' package has been updated in the Cygwin

This is currently a test release for two reasons:

1.) There has been a maintainer change.
2.) Various Cygwin maintainers whose packages rely on LessTif
    may have compatibility concerns.  Those packages are:


If you are a maintainer or user of one of the above packages, please test
this release.  Also, if you are a developer who uses Cygwin LessTif, your
input is also desired.

Note that you can test the new cygXm-2.dll without needing to recompile
the dependent application.  Although, a recompile is a more thorough test,
assuming you are sure the recompile would have succeeded before this

Please send all feedback to the Cygwin/X list.  If no issues remain after
a few weeks of testing, this release will be promoted to current.


* Sync with upstream release
  (see for details)
* Disable build of static libraries.
* Maintainer change.
* Sync with latest generic build script.
* acinclude.m4 (AC_FIND_XFT): Make compatible with
* Update lesstif.README.
