Yes, exactly, it is r10388 in CURRENT.
Yet not committed to STABLE, but will do soon.

Seems like a yearly or every two years release (like this one) is a good 
idea.  There are always little fixes or improvements that could benefit 
to some people.

Also, FYI, automake has just included upstream our local changes to 

Only the Cygwin part has not:

     +  # For Cygwin compatibility.
     +  if [ -x "$src".exe ]; then
     +    src=${src}.exe
     +  fi

   I think this change is too dangerous. It would make it impossible to
   install foo if foo.exe exists, regardless of what was intended.
   I think Cygwin support has to be handled at a different level,
   like EXEEXT in Autoconf.

Well, we're not impacted so it's fine for this local change to install-sh.
