Both of those URLs are 404 for me.

FYI, with my Autoconf hat on, I will not be inclined to take patches that 
hardcode "ANSI" terminal control codes.  $TERM must be honored in detail.  The 
easiest way to do that is probably to probe for the existence of the `tput` 
command and then use that to set shell variables with all the necessary control 
codes.  When working on patches for Automake, also keep in mind that $TERM 
might change between "./configure" and "make".
