(shrug)  I don't see that as something requiring us to use old tools
when we generate software.  If someone inadvertently puts in
something that requires Autoconf 2.68, then we can yank it out,
just as we yank out code requiring GNU Make 3.82 or GCC 4.6.0 or whatever.

Again, for maintainers it's no big deal.  I just hope that when we
cut tarballs for non-maintainers that we use the better tools.
