 Well, quoting in this context has always been accepted and perhaps even
preferred, it's only tools that used to be more forgiving, so the patch 
doesn't rely on any particular version of automake.  But 1.9 has been 
released, so you may have a look whether it suits you; otherwise 1.8.5 is 
probably a reasonable fall-back.

 Newer versions of autotools tend to work better with less common or newer
platforms, e.g. the "mips64el-linux" alias has only recently started being
recognized correctly.  It usually requires a complete replacement of
helper files with `libtoolize --automake --copy --force; automake
--add-missing --copy --force', though.
