All those changes look good to me; but you may want to call autoupdate
more times, as there are still some AC_TRY_* (nested) left.

I don't have a strong preference.  It's always nice to have more up to
date tools, but on the other hand 2.62 would be very slightly tricky
(for me, and maybe others) as I don't believe it's in Debian
stable/testing yet. Now that we have the changes from autoupdate, what
is the benefit of 2.62 vs. 2.61?  Do any of those changes depend on
running >= 2.62?

Definitely both, if at all, IMO.
