Yes, from memory, exactly what I got. So, it seems the instructions
might remain as I did in r15391 and forgot to inform.

Yes. the Note has that as alternative to the sed.

I believe that just changing the default to this (with -v, perhaps)
would make the Note unnecessary. Not sure about that though, because it
was like that untill somebody changed to use the autgen.sh script, which
is essentially that, but without the -f option.

There is a note in the bad libtool generated by autogen.sh (or does it
come bundled?) after some pages after the head recommending not to edit
what follows, but after our experiments today, I have the impression
that it is not really a problem generating a new one when we use
autoreconf -fi && ./configure  CFLAGS="-O2" ...

Don't know. Seem to remember post telling that we support 2 previous
releases. But you are a much better judge of that. Perhaps it is built
without problem there? If you don't mind, it might be interesting.
