D'oh. Here's a bigger reason why this won't work:
will clash between the cygwin pacakge autoconf2.5-2.63-* and
autoconf2.59-2.59-*. So you could only have one or the other installed
at a time, but setup.exe doesn't support the conflicts: keyword.

I could also resurrect autoconf2.5-2.59 as the "permanent" prev: for the
autoconf2.5 series, but (a) you still could only have one or the other,
2.59 or 2.63, installed at a time, and (b) that still doesn't solve the
automake-1.9-pristine problem detailed earlier.
