I don't know for sure (I don't have access to these machines now), but 
autopackage has only been used to install lilypond there. Hence the version 
is probably the one shipped with lily 2.5.28 or 2.5.30.

If the problem is related to the autopackage version, then the lily 
autopackage should upgrade the package manager automatically IMHO; should 
this be reported to the autopackage guys?
