Hi Zack,


You'll find there:
00cmp.ac270.only-fails-with-ac270.txt : list of packages that failed
with autoconf 2.70, but succeeded with 2.69

00res.ac270.only-failures.txt : same list, but annotated with an
indication about the failure.

00cmp.ac270.txt: full list comparing the result with vanilla unstable
00res.ac270.txt: full list of build results with autoconf 2.70

Let me know if you need something else!
