New versions of these package should adapt to the new automake behaviour
once (anf if) they upgrade from automake < 1.11.4 to automake >= 1.11.4.
And if you are re-bootstrapping an older version of these package (after
you've applied distro-specific patches I guess), you should be prepared
to use the same autotools versions they used in the corresponding release
