Build tools, they're good for your heart....
The build box was upgraded this weekend. I think I've caught everything,
and snapshots should roll off the assembly line like hotcakes, or, er,
whatever. We'll see.
The config.guess & friends were being excluded. It was a matter of tools.
I'm now using:
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.5
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.14 (1.1220.2.195 2005/02/12 12:12:33)
Those are all newer than before. I'll be updating INSTALL.CVS to reflect
