The autoconf package has been updated to version 6.  Recall that this
package is not the real autoconf, but is a wrapper system to delegate to
the appropriate version of real autoconf (either 2.13 or 2.63 at present).

This is a feature enhancement and compatibility update, which adds
support for the autoconf2.5-2.63 release.  This will most likely be the
final autoconf (wrapper) update for the cygwin-1.5 distribution; future
development will continue with autoconf-6-10 for cygwin-1.7.

Changes (autoconf-4-1 ---> autoconf-6-1)

* update to latest upstream release
  + adds support for autoconf-2.62 and autoconf-2.63
