 Log Message:
 Update to 1.9.6:
 Bugs fixed in 1.9.6:
 * Longstanding bugs:
   - Correctly diagnose `#' comments following trailing backslash.
   - Preserve backslashes preceding `##' lines.
   - Preserve the order of items conditionally appended (+=) to variables.
   - Fix support of installation directory names with spaces on systems
     where mkinstalldirs cannot use `mkdir -p'.
   - Avoid infinite loop in mdate-sh when TIME_STYLE is set.
   - Do not output two definitions of SOURCES (an internal variable).
     One was not formatted and could exceed the maximum line length of
     some third-party tools (e.g., AIX 5.1 grep, breaking dependency
   - Do not empty info files when attempting to rebuild them without makeinfo.
   - Be smarter when a references files in both "./dir" and
     "dir": do not output two rules to create these directories.
   - Do not attempt to recover a missing *.elc file if it cannot be
     created because emacs does not exist.
   - Several aclocal fixes for issues occuring when
     includes some other m4 files explicitely with m4_include or m4_sinclude.
   - depcomp's cpp mode now understands preprocessors that output either
     `#line 42 file' or `# 42 file'.  (Only the latter was supported.)
 * Other miscellaneous changes:
   - Update the GPL, and the FSF postal address.
   - Anticipate for python2.5 in AM_PATH_PYTHON.
   - The manual should now compile without any warning from TeX.
