Somehow a git (tarball?[1]) checkout of Autoconf sometimes manages to

My point is, the error that follows is quite unintuitive, and the issue
itself is worth fixing, too, I guess.


Maybe store in git a file
containing at least the latest stable release number, so we can fall
back to something like 2.65-dirty rather than UNKNOWN?

You can get it from

sed -e '/.*changes in Autoconf \([^( ]*\) ([^?].*/!d;s//\1/;q' NEWS
