Below is just a sample of what's new.

environment variable and checks to see if they already exist.

that is user extensible. It is the former avrprog by Brian Dean now renamed
- GNU Debugger (GDB) 5.3 for the AVR target (avr-gdb) is now included.
- AVaRICE 2.0 is now included. AVaRICE is a program for interfacing the Atmel
JTAG ICE to GDB so users can debug their AVR.
- SRecord 1.14 is now included. SRecord is a collection of utilities to
manipulate load files in different formats and various ways.

(And without any batch files to do it!)
