Please do, use autoconf-2.65 and look at the diff for configure, only
the few lines that you touched should change.  There's no need for a
ChangeLog entry for regenerating configure,

The patch looks fine.  Thanks!

Here's some other cygwin related cleanups:

- remove this:

#ifdef CYGWIN
#define BSD4_2

and instead add defined(CYGWIN) in the right place in the only user: vm-limit.c

- in configure.in the setting for lastfile.o 
cygwin is the only platform that uses different linking order.
If the "normal" linking order works on cygwin too, it would simplify the build 
a bit.
