Bugs fixed in 1.9.5:

* Longstanding bugs:

  - All m4 files have been relicensed under an all-permissive license.

    Previously they used a GPL license, and an all-permissive license
    was prepended when they were copied into aclocal.m4, leading to
    some confusion.

  - aclocal now recognizes AU_ALIAS.

  - Improve support for `make -k', it didn't work on cygwin.

  - Fix the definition of FCLINK for preprocessed Fortran.

  - Fixes for auxiliary scripts:

    - depcomp's tru64 mode did not work while compiling libtool libraries
      with static libraries disabled.

    - mdate-sh now copes with Darwin's non-standard ls output.

    - missing properly emulates makeinfo when neither -o nor
      @setfilename are used.

  - Don't output long variable definitions.  Automake normally tries
    to output variable definitions as they are input, bug very long
    lines in can break some sed and make implementations
    with a limited line length.  If a line in a variable definition is
    longer than 1000 characters, automake will wrap the definition
    around 80 columns.  Other definitions are still output untouched.

* Noteworthy manual updates:

  - Hard-Coded Install Paths: New FAQ entry.

  - How the Linker is Chosen: Rewritten.
