Problem: it seems that there are few (and luckily only few) active packages

I created most of the libjpeg build configury. The official maintainer (Guido Vollbeding) added the extra AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE options.

So, maybe it would be worthwhile to directly inform the maintainers of the
packages mentioned above that still use de-ANSI-fication feature about its
oncoming deprecation and removal.  WDYT?

If they do not hear about it, I am sure that they will learn once the option stops working.
