Odd warning

After having upgraded from automake-1.8.1 to automake-1.8.2 (And having
modified some Makefile.ams), I received this warning from automake: version mismatch.  This is Automake 1.8.2, but the definition used by this AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from Automake 1.8.1.  You should recreate aclocal.m4 with aclocal and run automake again.
WARNING: `automake-1.8' is probably too old.  You should only need it if
         you modified `', `acinclude.m4' or `'.
         You might want to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages.
         Grab them from any GNU archive site.
 cd . && /bin/sh ./config.status Makefile

I don't understand why this warning is issued.

To my understanding automake-1.8.1 and automake-1.8.2 both should
implement the automake-1.8 API and therefore should be sufficiently

Therefore, I don't understand why 
1. this warning is required at all.
2. automake doesn't automatically try to do what it recommends the user
to do manually: running aclocal and automake.
