What problems are you having with autoconf on MSYS/MinGW?

Build of Autoconf-2.6[01] fails for me with:

 "The system cannot find the specified file"

I've spent some time understanding this; I made some progress, but not
to the point of getting pass that failure.  my frustration with windows
is only growing.

I built autoconf-2.61 and m4-1.4.9 directly from the gnu distribution
sources. Provided you have upgraded m4 first, autoconf passes all

I'm using m4-1.4.9 and ActivePerl-5.8.9 build 820.

Apparently you can also install autoconf-2.61 and m4-1.4.7 binaries

yes, i donwloaded the autoconf package from there last night; I've
not tried that version yet.

I ran with autoconf-2.61 to create a new ./configure
and built build-improvements on my Solaris 10.2 x86 system and on
Windows without any problems.

Is there any particular reason you want to continue using the older
version autoconf-2.60? (I think you can, but I haven't actually built
2.60 on MSYS/MinGW.)

my three main linux boxes are running that version,
