New: gcc-tools-autoconf-2.59-2
Wed Jan 7 05:33:00 GMT 2009

This is an unmodified version of autoconf-2.59, installed into
/opt/gcc-tools/ for the use of gcc developers. Gcc requires
an unpatched, pristine version of autoconf when preparing patches
for official submission. For various reasons [1] it cannot coexist with
the existing autoconf packages in /usr.

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.

The gcc-tools-autoconf-2.59-2 package was prepared on and for cygwin-1.5
using cygport-0.4.0. It differs from the simultaneously released
gcc-tools-autoconf-2.59-10 for cygwin-1.7 only in the location of some
documentation files.
