Updated: automake-1.5b-1

The automake package has been updated from version 1.5a-1
to version 1.5b-1. Recall that this package is not the
REAL automake.  It's a set of wrapper scripts that call
the REAL automake from automake-stable or automake-devel,
depending on the needs of your target.

This update fixes a mistake in the version parsing code
that helps determine which REAL automake to call.  Thanks
to Martin Oberhuber.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'automake' from the 'Devel' category.  You may need to click the
"Full" button if it doesn't show up.  Also, if you haven't recently
updated, you might want to make sure that you have the latest versions
of ALL of the following six packages:
The -devel and -stable packages are fairly new and are part of a
restructuring of the autotools packages; see this message for more

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is already

In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
