The automake package has been updated from version 1.5b-1
to version 1.6a-1. Recall that this package is not the
REAL automake. It's a set of wrapper scripts that call
the REAL automake from automake-stable or automake-devel,
depending on the needs of your target. See this message
o fix M4PATH obliteration (thanks to James Harvey for
pointint out the bug)
o Add special handling for --version when no configure.ac
or configure.in file is found (thanks to
James Roberts-Thomson and Ron Parker)
o Add a guard to avoid infinite loop when -devel or
-stable packages are not installed. (thanks to
Pavel Tsekov for pointing out the bug)
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to
your system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'automake' from the 'Devel' category. You may need to click the
"Full" button if it doesn't show up.
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.
In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is already
In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
