Gcc requires that an unpatched, pristine version of autoconf be
used when preparing patches for official submission. For various
reasons [1] these pristine versions cannot coexist with the
existing autoconf packages in /usr.

gcc-4.3.x and gcc-4.4.x development requires autoconf-2.59
gcc-4.5.x development requires autoconf-2.64

This package provides autoconf-2.59 and installs into
/opt/gcc-tools/epoch1/{bin,share} for use when developing
gcc-4.3.x and gcc-4.4.x.

For more information about these new *-epochN packages, see

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.

As expected now that cygwin-1.7.1 has been officially released,
this gcc-tools-epoch1-autoconf package is available exclusively
for cygwin-1.7.
