Twice now I've seen on config-patches a report submitted because of this.

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.
That's fine if the user is using cygport but from the two I've seen on
config-patches is that the user is executing a package configure where
the package has an 11 year old config.guess and is not using cygport
at all.
I would think that cygwin64 is the least of your worries if you're using an 11 year-old config.guess...


That is what you get if you pull a source tar ball off the source tree. Sometimes there is a clue on a next step along a path to accomplish an update and sometimes not.
