Erm, s/1.13.2/1.13.1/.  Sorry for the confusion.

Actually, I believe the purpose of the 'autotools-install' script is to
fetch and install the *latest* available version  of the autotools (and
of gettext); so the version bump should be automatic whenever a new
m4, autoconf, automake, libtool or gettext version comes along.
