Version 1.6-1 of the automake-devel package, which has been
available as a test release for a month now with no complaints,
has been marked 'current'.  It contains GNU automake-1.6,
installed into /usr/autotool/devel.

Full disclosure: GNU automake 1.6 adds 29 new internal
self tests.  The cygwin build fails four of these new tests:
OTOH, the cygwin build does pass the other 350 self tests.

The cygwin build of automake-1.5b passed all of its 323 self

So, the new version has no *regressions* -- it passes all of
the older 323 selftests -- but fails some of the more
stringent new tests added in 1.6.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'automake-devel' from the 'Devel' category.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is already

In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
