Autoconf 2.57 generates configure scripts that always ask for a report to
address@hidden  Autoconf 2.59 and later ask for a report to the package
bug report address, if specified, or else to "the GNU foo lists" (for example).
It will take time for installations of Autoconf 2.57 die out, and even longer to
obsolete all package releases bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.57.  These reports
will trickle in for years to come.
