We really ought to change the default REQUIRED_AUTOMAKE_VERSION. Using
1.4 for a default (and not accepting any other) is really annoying.
The default value for the environment variable was set at 1.4 so as to
not break existing packages -- before hand, it wasn't possible to use a
modern version of automake with the common autogen script.
I wouldn't mind getting to a stage where people didn't need to install
Automake versions less than 1.7 (which is what GTK requires), but it'd
take a fair bit of work to update the remaining packages.
