Autotools broken?

It appears in the latest cygwin (updated just hours ago) that the
libtool is broken...

I'm  using the autotools on a very big build tree, that has over 600 c
source files to be built, and some 50 assembler sources. When using
autoconf, automake and libtool, the configure script dies complaining
that it cannot find ''. I am using the devel (with
AC_PREREQ(2.52)) version of the tools, and have searched in
/usr/autotool/{devel,stable}/share/libtool and there appears to be no
sign of

The entire build tree works perfectly when on linux, and on solaris.
this a cygwin issue? I'm relatively new to windows and cygwin.

How do I go about solving this?
