[Bug-wget] [Bug-Wget] Missing script too old

When trying to configure Wget, I have started seeing a new warning message:

/home/sauron/Programming/wget/build-aux/missing: Unknown `--is-lightweight'
> option
> Try `/home/sauron/Programming/wget/build-aux/missing --help' for more
> information
> configure: WARNING: 'missing' script is too old or missing

I checked the local version of my missing script in
/usr/share/automake-1.14/missing and diff'ed it with the version available
in build-aux/missing

The main difference can be seen in the script version:
scriptversion=2012-01-06.13; # UTC

scriptversion=2012-06-26.16; # UTC

Since build-aux/missing is not a part of the source distribution, I assumed
that running `make maintainer-clean` and then ./bootstrap should copy the
new version. However this does not seem to be the case and the old version
remains. I'm not sure if this file is sourced from gnulib.

I am running Arch-Linux with autoconf 2.69 and automake 1.14

Seems like a warning we should take care of since the script has changed
quite considerably.

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
