Re: autoconf packaging error

Hi all,
There seems to be a packaging error in autoconf (autoconf2.5-2.68-1
according to cygcheck -f /usr/share/man/man1/autoconf-2.68.1.gz).
The shorter names for the man pages point to non-existent files:

The symlinks don't appear in the output of cygcheck -l autoconf2.5; I
suspect the post-install script.

Yes, there's a bug in /etc/postinstall/

#!/bin/bash -e

# make unversion man pages
pushd /usr/share/man/man1 >/dev/null 2>&1
for fn in autoconf autoheader autom4te autoreconf autoscan \
        autoupdate config.guess config.sub ifnames
        rm -f ${fn}.1.gz 2>/dev/null || /bin/true
-       ln -fs ${fn}-2.67.1.gz ${fn}.1.gz 2>/dev/null || /bin/true
+       ln -fs ${fn}-2.68.1.gz ${fn}.1.gz 2>/dev/null || /bin/true
popd >/dev/null 2>&1

For now, the short term workaround is to make the indicated change, and re-run the script manually (perhaps in an elevated shell).
