Mh. It’s just that I know 1.4+2.13 work, and 1.9+2.61 work…
everything else will need to be tried out, and last time I
looked, autotools were under quite active development ;-)

(Reminds me to try to get stuff into libtool again… ours,
by the way, is an 1.5 branch one working with 2.13 too,
losing some AIX stuff in the process but hey. And we have
patches in the port that are required to get things to
work when using with ports.)

Anyway, someone™ will probably look at it, and thanks for
bringing the issues to our notice. (I know both Benny and
I work on/with autotools, on whatever spare time we have.)
