The autoconf package has been updated to version 7.  Recall that this
package is not the real autoconf, but is a wrapper system to delegate to
the appropriate version of real autoconf (either 2.13 or 2.64 at present).

This is a feature enhancement and compatibility update, which adds
support for the autoconf2.5-2.64 release.

This release is specific for cygwin-1.7; the only differences between this
package and the simultaneously-released autoconf-7-1 for cygwin-1.5 are
documentation related (the README references cygport-0.9.9 and cygwin-1.7.0-59,
and the /usr/share/doc/ layout is influenced by the cygport changes
between 0.4.4 and 0.9.9).

CHANGES (autoconf-6-10 ---> autoconf-7-10)

  + adds support for autoconf-2.64
