For what concerns this: are you willing to re-submit your patch
series about AM_PROG_AR to automake-patches?  I will try hard to
look into it, if you are willing to do the required testing and
to patiently explain to me the details I won't undertand (and
be warned that there will probably be many of them, since I'm a
total Windows noob).

Oh, also, before doing that, could you please merge the 'maint'
branch into the 'msvc' branch?  Or I can do that for you if you
prefer (but then you'll have to double-check that the merge has
been really successfull).
