Autoconf 2.57f is released

From: Akim Demaille
Subject: Autoconf 2.57f is released
Date: Wed, 01 Oct 2003 13:23:49 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.1002 (Gnus v5.10.2) Emacs/21.3 (gnu/linux)

This is our candidate release for Autoconf 2.58.  We plan to release
it soon, so that Automake 1.8 can be released, hence Libtool 1.6, so
that GNU M4 2.0 can be shipped, enabling Autoconf 2.60 ;)

Please, test it thoroughly.

        Akim, Alexandre, Jim, Paul, and Tom.
