Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in' files
compliant with the GNU Coding Standards.  This is routine update in the
automake-1.10 release series, and contains the latest version of
automake system, automake-1.10.

This cygwin package, automake1.10, can be installed without conflict
alongside the existing automake1.9, automake1.8, automake1.7,
automake1.6, automake1.5, and automake1.4 cygwin packages.

CHANGES (from automake1.10-1.10.1-10)
* Routine update to latest upstream release in the 1.10.x series

Testsuite results:
2 of 597 tests failed
(28 tests were not run)
No regressions.  The two failures are new tests added in
1.10.2 and do not represent regressions. These test results
differ from those of the cygwin-1.5 package of the same
automake version because I ran this edition's test suite
under an Administrator account.

Testsuite Details:
FAIL: check8.test  check9.test
These are actually bugs in the test suite. They do not properly
account for '.exe' on (some) executable names. I believe this is
fixed in 1.11, so I'm ignoring it here.
