Version 1.7.6-1 of the automake-devel package is now available.  It 
contains GNU automake-1.7.6 installed into /usr/autotool/devel.

Changes from 1.7.5-1:
o updated to official 1.7.6 release
o requires autoconf-2.54 or newer
o no testsuite regressions (that is, any test that existed in 1.7.5
   and was passed then, is still passed now in 1.7.6)
o Continued test failures (failed in both 1.7.5 and 1.7.6)

Summary: 1 failure + 13 skips out of 457 tests.
See NOTES section, below.

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-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

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
