The autoconf package has been updated to version 13.  Recall that this
package is not the real autoconf, but is a wrapper system to delegate to
the appropriate version of real autoconf (either 2.13 or 2.69 at present).

This is a feature enhancement and compatibility update, which adds
support for the development versions of autoconf2.5 (with a placeholder
version of 9999). It also improves detection speed of installed autoconfs.

CHANGES since autoconf-10-1
* update to latest gentoo release
  + adds support for "development" versions of autoconf as version "9999".
  + Also improves detection speed.
* Rely on cygport to autogenerate setup.hint file
* First cygwin64 build
