Re: [PATCH] update automake version to 1.11.6

I have two machines, both with automake-1.11.1 configured and built
from the same source, but the two generate ever-so-slightly different

I have to filter out this difference every time I run automake at home.

Both generate identical results for gold/testsuite/, though.

Is there a known non-determinism somewhere in automake? Maybe 1.11.6 fixed that.
