I second that.  I went from zero Autotools knowledge to a Zen master
with this book (well... almost :) ).   It is excellent.  You should buy
it.  No sane person wouldn't pick up "Programming Perl", for example,
just because it doesn't cover all the way up to perl 5.6.1... similarly
with this book.  You will learn enough to be able to do anything, and
the extra "2.5x" stuff you can get from the docs.
