Nope.  Just prior to building tarballs I fetch the newest versions
available from their canonical home and copy them to our tree.

This way we're within 3 months of the latest versions available.
autoconf and automake don't get updated that often, and even if they
did, they'd be fetching them from the same upstream place I do.
