This package provides a wrapper system for the various automakeX.Y
packages, and plays a role similar to that of the long-standing autoconf
wrapper package.

This wrapper system is based on the am-wrapper POSIX shell script
developed by the gentoo distribution, with tweaks to support cygwin's
existing alternatives framework for switching between the various
installed automakes.

The end-user experience should be transparent: invoke 'automake' and the
wrapper will select the appropriate version based on the contents of the
files in the directory where it is invoked (e.g. if Makefile.in was
created by automake-1.6 from Makefile.am, then the wrapper will "know"
to invoke automake-1.6).

Changes (automake-4-10 ---> automake-7-1)
* update to latest Gentoo release (am-wrapper-7.sh rev 1.1)
  + Adds support for automake1.12
