IMO, it would be undesirable to have autoconf use a version of automake
that isn't a released version.  When I was learning automake, autoconf,
etc. I went about it by actually using the tools on themselves.  Not
having a released version of automake would have been a stumbling block
as at the time I didn't have a cvs client and wouldn't have known that
it was possible to get the automake source from a CVS server even if I
had a cvs client.

If you do this, please package the source for the version of automake
that you use with the autoconf source.
