This patch set contains no changes to classpath except in generated
files (which are not checked in upstream) and in the one bit of
documentation.  Tom agreed to handle that (I Cc:ed him on the patch)
in <>.

I thought the consensus was to move to the most recent stable releases
when we would move.  At least there was no complaints to the plan

A move to 2.63 would be more work (backporting some known issues from
2.64); OTOH, for development, the situation does not grow worse with
2.64 from what we have now: you already have to have an extra set of
(old) tools installed somewhere.  We expect this situation to only
improve, as more distributions upgrade Autoconf.

Since its release on 2009-07-26, Autoconf 2.64 has not seen a regression
that impacted GCC's use of it AFAICS (and only minor ones otherwise).
