[does NOT require cygwin-1.5.3+ -- this package was in 'test' for normal 
reasons.  It doesn't solve all the problems I wanted it to, but it works 
everywhere the old version did, and fixes several bugs.]

The autoconf package has been updated to version 2.57a-1. Recall that 
this package is not the REAL autoconf.  It's a set of wrapper scripts 
that call the REAL autoconf from autoconf-stable or autoconf-devel, 
depending on the needs of your target. See this message


o WANT_AUTOCONF_VER variable support added; now you can
   override the auto-detection logic by setting this environment
   variable.  e.g. "WANT_AUTOCONF_VER=2.57"

o Add support for missing options
   (autoreconf) Add --opt-make
   (autoreconf) Add --opt-warnings
   (autoscan)   Add --opt-debug
   (ifnames)    Add --opt-macrodir
