well, I supposed that the development happens on system with symlinks.
The fallbacks for LN_S are there to enable one time build on hosts with
limited ability.

I meant:
If you had enough time, you'd acquire the ability to hack Automake, you'd
prepare a patch for the bug we are discussing, and then you'd attach it
to the bug report in the bugs database.
(I kind of supposed that the bug report would be already there.)

That's why it all boils down to having time.

I admit that my previous statement was confused.
