Relying on these stable distributions generally means not wanting to
mess with unstable development versions.  Requiring a newer Automake
version in Gnulib will only affect those.

In the specific cases where people want to build/develop or install the
latest version of a package using Gnulib on these distributions,
requiring them to install a newer version of Automake or to bootstrap
the tarball elsewhere is not a high requirement IMO.
