 Nope, I have aclocal coded first in RPM spec files, but I take snapshots
at night, so this wasn't included in my copy on May, 17th. 

 This fixes the configure-time error, indeed, but is it correct?  I
believe dependencies should only be controlled by the "no-dependencies"
setting in AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS and thus my fix is correct and your one is
doubtful.  Note a related problem is without my change there is no way to
automatically update depcomp, as it's possible for all other files.
