Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in' files
compliant with the GNU Coding Standards.  This is routine packaging
update for automake-1.9, and contains the latest version of the
automake 1.9 series, automake-1.9.6.

This cygwin package, automake1.9, can be installed without conflict
alongside the existing automake1.14 ... automake1.10, automake1.8 ...
automake1.4 cygwin packages.

CHANGES SINCE 1.9.6-10
======================================================================
* Rely on cygport to autogenerate setup.hints
* Update config.sub/config.guess to latest standard (supports
  cygwin64)
* Use 'alternatives' only for documentation; rely on wrapper
  to handle the tools themselves.
* First cygwin64 release

Testsuite results
=====================================
cyg32| 7 of 560 tests failed
cyg32| (8 tests were not run)
cyg64| 7 of 560 tests failed
cyg64| (8 tests were not run)
=======================================================

Testsuite Details:
=====================================
both| FAIL: compile_f90_c_cxx.test
both| FAIL: compile_f_c_cxx.test
both| FAIL: flibs.test
            Looks like a bug in the test. It expects a copy of
            config.guess/config.sub in the testing directory, but
            never copies it there nor runs automake with --add-missing.

both| FAIL: pr401.test
            This new test (and its corresponding fix) is backported
            from am1.10 -- but the new .test file created by the patch
            is not executable. A simple chmod +x command before re-
            running the test fixes it.

both| FAIL: instsh.test
both| FAIL: location.test
both| FAIL: warnopts.test
            All of these appear to be due to a warning issued by new
            perl when parsing Wrap.pm: "Useless use of /d modifier in
            transliteration operator at .../lib/Automake/Wrap.pm line 60."
            This messes up the expected stderr output.

While technically these 7 failures are regressions from the
previous am1.9 release:
   0 of 545 tests failed
They all appear to be related to platform updates (e.g. perl), or
otherwise do not actually represent regressions in automake itself,
so to speak.
