Can't the user on the second system just configure and build his own
automake?  That's the standard approach.  In fact, that's the whole
point of having configure: to detect differences between systems.

I'm inclined not to check this patch in, given that this hasn't been a
problem before (at least, I don't remember it ever coming up).
