I still need to figure out all the packages that build-depend on
automake incorrectly, and file bugs on them. I'm not sure I will ever
make the latest release of automake in the package named automake,
since if something similar to the 1.4->1.5 transition happens again,
people will be pissed off. But I hope to have all the automake
packages Provides: automake so that people can depend on automake if
they need just some version of it.
