Hallo Ralf,

Sorry I didn't see the original yet... I still have 400 emails backed up
in my Inbox. :(

Yes, you're right.  I had thought my ~/old-autotools/bin had 2.61
installed, but it turns out that it was 2.62 all along, which is 
why I haven't experienced any failures in my tests.

Also, I don't think it is worth worrying about 2.61 compatibility,
since getopt.m4sh is only needed when bootstrapping, which requires
newer autotools anyway.
