The versions installed into /usr/share/automake-X.Y/ have all been 
modified to be the latest upstream as of mid-July -- for all X.Y from 
1.4 to 1.14.

Also, cygport itself ships with an identical copy, and modifying your 
script to call 'gnuconfigize' during src_compile() will update them as well.
