Version 2.54-1 of the autoconf-devel package is now available.
It contains GNU autoconf-2.54, installed into /usr/autotool/devel.

GNU autoconf-2.54 provides "several bug fixes, improved portability, no 
known incompatibility with 2.53, forthcoming Automake 1.7 requires 2.54."

Changes since 2.53a-1

o update to the GNU 2.54 release
o all 164 self tests successful (3 skipped)
o The "ac-2.52, ac-2.53, ac-2.53a generate buggy configure scripts"
   problem seems to be gone.

Yes, I know autoconf-2.55 will be released later this week.  But it has 
some significant changes relative to past autoconfs; we'll hold off on 
that for a while, and laugh at the pain and angst on the autoconf 
mailing list.

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 'autoconf-devel' from the 'Devel' category.

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
updated.

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
mirror.

Please  send questions or comments to the Cygwin mailing list at:
cygwin@sources.redhat.com .  If you want to subscribe go to:
http://cygwin.com/lists.html I would appreciate if you would use
this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing
list is the appropriate place.
