[ANNOUNCEMENT] NEW: automake-2-1

This new package provides a wrapper system for the various automakeX.Y packages, and plays a role similar to that of the long-standing autoconf wrapper package.

This wrapper system is based on the bash am-wrapper developed by the gentoo distribution, with tweaks to support cygwin's existing alternatives framework for switching between the various installed automakes.

The end-user experience should be transparent: invoke 'automake' and the wrapper will select the appropriate version based on the contents of the files in the directory where it is invoked (e.g. if was created by automake-1.6 from, then the wrapper will "know" to invoke automake-1.6).

This package is based on the automake-1-1 distributed by the cygwin-ports team.
