The following package has been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* autoconf2.5-2.69-3

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages. These
scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like systems
without manual user intervention.  Autoconf creates a configuration
script for a package from a template file that lists the operating
system features that the package can use, in the form of m4 macro calls.

This release adds a /usr/share/config.site file[1] so that ./configure
--prefix=/usr automatically sets sysconfdir and localstatedir correctly
per the FHS.
