[adding autoconf-patches]

According to Keith Marshall on 5/9/2008 2:16 PM:
| If autoconf's Makefile is processed by a GNU make-3.81, which has been
| configured to respect a case insensitive file system, (IMO, the correct
| configuration for use on MS-Windows,

Perhaps for MSYS and other native MS-Windows environments, but not for
cygwin :)

| among other other systems which
| also have such file systems), and the build is configured directly
| within the source directory, then `make install' fails thus:
|   $ make install
|   Makefile:678: warning: overriding commands for target `install'

Thanks for the report and patch.  I tested it with BSD make, and it
appeared to work just fine, so I'm installing it.  This patch is trivial,
but you may want to consider assigning copyright to make future patch
contribution run more smoothly.  Also, your ChangeLog summary took two
lines, but git prefers a one-line summary, so I condensed it.
