I've just noticed one bugfix that I'll provide soon (if this whole
endeavor is not a dead end). newlib does AC_PREREQ(2.5) -- but my
current scripts will interpret that as != 2.13 and use the development
branch. cygwin (winsup) has a mix of AC_PREREQ(2.12) and
AC_PREREQ(2.13). So, I need to change the logic to call auto-stable
when AC_PREREQ <= 2.13...
