Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in' files
compliant with the GNU Coding Standards.  This is routine update in the
automake-1.10 release series, and contains the latest version of
automake system, automake-1.10.

This cygwin package, automake1.10, can be installed without conflict
alongside the existing automake1.9, automake1.8, automake1.7,
automake1.6, automake1.5, and automake1.4 cygwin packages.

This release is a packaging update of the automake1.10 package.  This
will most likely be the final automake1.10 update for the cygwin-1.5
distribution; future development will continue with
automake1.10-1.10.1-10 for cygwin-1.7.

Changes (automake1.10-1.10.1-1 ---> automake1.10-1.10.1-2)

* Update packaging to use stock cygport-0.4.0
* Import fixes from gentoo
* Ensure distcheck passes when using libtool-2.2 and
  the LT_OUTPUT macro appears in configure.ac.
* Ensure /usr/share/aclocal directory is preserved

Testsuite results:
3 of 590 tests failed
(25 tests were not run)
FAIL: libtoo10.test  ltlibsrc.test  pr401b.test
These tests require that they be run as root (Administrator), which I
didn't initially. Rerunning under an Administrator account allows them
to pass.
