I had a hard time getting any clue that the CVS repo was abandoned. Now finally
found http://savannah.gnu.org/git/?group=classpath which is not that obvious
when you start at classpath.org.

Further, it looks like classpath did bump the requirement on autoconf to 2.69,
and didn't even bother to document that (m4/iconv.m4 requires macros only found
in 2.69).  classpath itself pretends to require 2.63.

GCC has 2.64, and won't change for the next release. Any hint how to handle this
properly?
