I wasn't trying to make more work for you, honest. I think Debian has
automake back to 1.4, and the reason I mention it is that older
versions often get set as default. I don't think it's unreasonable to
say that we "require" autoconf 2.59+ and automake 1.9+ even if it
might work with automake 1.9.

Understood. And if we use "make distcheck" to roll SVN snapshots, then
the snapshot users don't need autoconf/make, either. I'll see what I
can do about automating that.
