The issues I mention are primarily philosophical and religious.
There is a subversive element of open source society that is willing
to use Autoconf and Libtool, but not Automake.  The FreeType and
libJPEG projects come to mind.  If AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is used, then
Automake must be installed in order to maintain the package, even if
the dependent package uses JAM, GNU make, BSD make, Imake, or
hand-coded traditional make.

As for me, I am one of the Automake believers.
