I don't know the details about Automake, but for Autoconf I see no
problem with releasing unger GPLv3 right now.  The special exception
for Autoconf-generated code can continue in its current form; it's
not specific to any of the differences between GPLv2 and GPLv3, since
the exception grants all access (i.e., public-domain access) to the
code in question.
