Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in' files
compliant with the GNU Coding Standards.  This is routine packaging
update for automake-1.4, and contains the latest version of the
automake 1.4 series, automake-1.4p6.

This cygwin package, automake1.4, can be installed without conflict
alongside the existing automake1.14 ... automake1.5 cygwin packages.

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

            This appears 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.
