Well, that's the problem.  cygport knows which files to ignore only when
it controls the process via the *autoreconf() functions.  If you run
libtoolize/autoconf/automake manually, you're on your own, so
understandably you need to add the relevant files to DIFF_EXCLUDES.

As for why you didn't need to do this with cygport 0.9.9, that's because
the fine-tuned exclusion code wasn't added until 0.10.0 (commit e153ad5
to be precise)  Prior to that, all these files were indiscriminately
excluded from the patch, regardless of whether or how autotools were
actually used.
