The patch is a one-liner against installed automake script, and is included 
in the libtool-1.4 README,  For most developers (who continue to use 
automake-1.4) it is a simple matter of (not tested btw):

   $ sudo sh -c 'cat README | (cd $automake_prefixdir/bin && patch -p0)'

...or something.

If you don't mind having your developers upgrade to libtool-1,4, then asking 
them to apply this patch isn't too onerous IMHO.  Automake-1.5 is almost 
certainly several months away.

Besides, I imagine Debian (and presumably other distros) will soon start 
shipping libtool-1.4 and a patched automake-1.4.  Perhaps that is a better 
thing to wait for than automake-1.5?
