And we likewise specify the minimum version of automake (1.11) to use:

AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([gnits 1.11 -Wno-portability dist-bzip2 no-dist-gzip parallel-tests])

That is why I said we could update those. I think "everybody" now has
at least autoconf 2.69 and automake 1.13. But I don't believe that
really helps us at the moment.
