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...
