A (probably minor) bug on CYGWIN

First, thanks for all your hard work on this wonderful tool.

I'm currently maintaining a free software project on different
Unixes and CYGWIN and we recently ran into a small problem with libtool.

It appears that libtool is expecting to install in /usr (where automake
and autoconf are), but defaults to install in /usr/local. The result is
several AM_DEP errors and an inability to build libraries. Once we
instruct it to install in /usr instead everything works.

The library that we discovered this problem on is a C++ regular
expression package called regexx which can be found and
downloaded at http://bazar.conectiva.com.br/~niemeyer/projects/regexx/. 

The errors:

aclocal: configure.in: 19: macro `AM_PROG_LIBTOOL' not found in
/usr/share/automake/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in 

can be duplicated by installing regexx on a fresh CYGWIN install
and libtool in /usr/local.

thanks again,

Nile Geisinger
