I leave this decision up to cgf, personally I would draw the following line:
latest includes software that is officially supported (directly or indirect) by
the cygwin-core team (corinna, cgf and dj)
contrib contains software that is supported by the rest of cygwin-enthusiasts.
As far as I know there has never been something official statement about what to
put to latest / contrib

IMHO, automake, autoconf, libtool and perl should be a part of the base package
and therefore should go to the latest directory and not to the contrib
directory. Perl is required by the other three and automake, autoconf and
libtool [are|have] becom[ing|e] a de facto standard.
