Are we ready to completely ditch  Automake 1.4 requires
it, but even old stable distros like RHEL 5 use automake 1.9; and we
have documented the name change for years now.

At any rate, once we ditch in the testsuite, then we might
as well ditch it everywhere.  Or are you only ditching it for
interactions with automake, while it can still limp along for people
using old toolsets?  In that case, this patch (with Jim's fixes) is
probably okay.

I'm thinking autoconf 2.70 should warn loudly if is still
used, and then we can completely drop it for 2.71.
