This worked (so far as I can tell; the auto* invocations succeeded---
whether the products are correct is something else again!)

Since the Debian package blurbs for automake 1.5 and 1.6 deprecate
them in favor of either 1.4 or "anything later" (and 1.5 is
specifically called "buggy and unsupported"), I guess you should
require automake 1.7 for the bootstrap code.

Note to Debian users: automake1.4 is indeed recommended by Debian: if
you want to use a later version, you need to do

                update-alternatives --config automake
