Why would you need two versions?
You can use automake 1.14 today even if the minimum is 1.11.
I'm sure many people do.
(I see I used automake 1.14 and autoconf 2.69 for 24.3.90.)

I can't promise to remember, but failues with versions older than the
minimum will be obvious, and only affect builds from bzr, not releases,
so it doesn't seem like a big deal. You can update the ezwinports
versions whenever you feel like, no need to wait for Emacs to require
them. I don't foresee the minimum versions changing any time soon, but
you never know.
