[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] Updated: automake-4-10

This package provides a wrapper system for the various automakeX.Y
packages, and plays a role similar to that of the long-standing autoconf
wrapper package.

This wrapper system is based on the bash am-wrapper developed by the
gentoo distribution, with tweaks to support cygwin's existing
alternatives framework for switching between the various installed

The end-user experience should be transparent: invoke 'automake' and the
wrapper will select the appropriate version based on the contents of the
files in the directory where it is invoked (e.g. if was
created by automake-1.6 from, then the wrapper will "know"
to invoke automake-1.6).

This release is specific for cygwin-1.7. However, the only differences
between this package and the simultaneously-released automake-4-1 for
cygwin-1.5 are documentation related (the README references
cygport-0.9.5 and cygwin-1.7.0-48, and the /usr/share/doc/ layout is
influenced by the cygport changes between 0.4.4 and 0.9.5).

Changes (automake-3-10 ---> automake-4-10)
* update to latest Gentoo release ( rev 1.1)
  + Adds support for automake1.11
