Please report them.  We fixed a bunch of bugs for 1.6.1.  Right now,
based on user feedback, that seems to be a pretty reliable release.
If not, we'd like to know about it so we can fix more bugs and release
1.6.2.  In particular I think 1.6.1 is much less buggy than 1.5.

libtool performance problems have to be dealt with in the libtool arena.
I don't think there's much automake can do about it.

Unfortunately over time simple builds have gotten slower and slower as
we've added features.  You can disable some of the features to regain
the performance.  A more sane build system wouldn't have these problems.
