You can't.

Robert, I too have tested this. Note that concat.h was only included in 1
file, and that file doesn't use the only function declared in concat.h.

One thing to note: I don't know whether Igor is still using automake 1.7.1,
or if he trimmed the patch to only contain the relevant parts, having made
it with Cygwin's current automake 1.7.2.

What is policy for setup? Should we regenerate (and aclocal.m4,
and any other relevent files) with the current Cygwin release of automake,
since we are changing it at all, or would you prefer to keep it at the
version currently used?
