Certainly, but let's consider 4.1 security/bugfix release.  We'll
migrate to a cleaner autoconf/automake setup in 4.2.  It's on the top of
my list of things to do.  I recommended 2.50 based on an incorrect
assumption that Debian ships with 2.50 by default.  In fact, I had been
using 2.59 where the binary was named autoconf2.50.  So, I agree to
requiring 2.59.

The only library that we need to concentrate on is libiberty, which
appears to be supplementary for non-GNU platforms.

To clarify, I meant to imply that updates to texinfo.tex would occur in
GNATS version 4.2.  It will happen, just not yet.
