 that was spot-on, thanks for clarifying.  Even without that change,
it warns that things might break because of the wrong version of
automake (it's looking for 1.11, we're now on 1.12).  And to think
I've always been running autofoo when patching configure.* and
Makefile.* - still seems a safe way to procede, but it's nice when we
don't have to do it.
