[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: autoconf2.5-2.69-2

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.  The
autoconf2.5 package contains the latest edition of autoconf in the 2.5x
release sequence (which includes 2.60, 2.61, etc).

Changes since autoconf2.5-2.69-1
* Rebuild using latest cygport
* Fix bug in postinstall scripts
* First cygwin64 build

Testsuite results:
There seems to be a problematic race condition when running the tests
(Windows 7 64bit, cygwin(32)-1.7.20, regular user; also
cygwin(64)-1.7.21, regular user). Some tests fail with the following
error (under both 32bit and 64bit cygwin):
  rm: cannot remove `conftest.exe': Device or resource busy
However, re-running the test may succeed.  Also, the some of the
parallel tests hang and must be manually killed (see below). After
iteratively re-running the failed tests, the following composite
results were obtained.

Composite results, 32bit:
ERROR: 495 tests were run,
  8 failed (4 expected failures).
  8 tests were skipped.

Composite results, 64bit:
ERROR: 495 tests were run,
  8 failed (4 expected failures).
  8 tests were skipped.

That means there are only 4 "real" failures (which occur on both
32bit and 64bit cygwin):
  203: parallel test execution                         FAILED (
  207: parallel syntax error                           FAILED (
  208: parallel errexit                                FAILED (
  209: parallel autotest and signal handling           FAILED (

As in 2.65 and 2.67 but unlike 2.68, the parallel tests are again
broken on cygwin.  This is documented in the BUGS file:
   Meanwhile, Cygwin has known problems with named fifos that cause
   failures when attempting parallel tests in an autotest suite.

The tests were executed with LANG=en_US.UTF-8
