Thanks for the report, but what you pasted is merely a replay of correct behavior, rather than a bug report detailing where you think something is inconsistent. -V has always been an alias for --version, and --verbose has always been abbreviated -v, and this is consistent with 'autoreconf --help' output.

Perhaps you were referring to this recently fixed bug in the manual?

If not, then please tell us where you found the misleading information that led you to think -V meant --verbose instead of --version, so we can fix that documentation bug.
