Do you care to backport that patch to the `maint' branch of automake?  That way,
it will be possible to add support for lzip to the next maintenance release 
(which I bet will be released before 1.12).

Honestly, I wasn't aware that lzip support was not already present in maint.  
moslty my bad, but you have to partly share the blame here, since I had 
released a
beta version *ten days* before the 1.11.2 release -- if you had voiced your 
before, we could have lzip support in 1.11.2 now.

Anyway, no use in crying overt spilt milk; and as I said before, patches
