Which change requires a newer Automake?  I have 1.11, and I've just
reconfigured and rebuilt the latest trunk with no problems I could
spot.  Can you show the details of your failure?

Indeed.  Moreover, please don't require different versions for the
trunk and the branch, as it's a nuisance to have more than a single
version installed.  Also, nt/INSTALL and/or the packaged Autotools it
points to need to be updated once we upgrade to some newer version, so
please explicitly announce that here.
