Mike, could you save me a little time and let me know which of your
requested changes would maintain compatibility within that

I'll come back to you when I'll have time to take a look into it.

I don't know if that is due to my coexisting autoconf 2.5 and 2.13, but 
autoheader 2.13 complains that it wants a 2.5 version of autoconf with or 
without the patch applied... so it seems to me that the autoconf 2.13 
compatibility is already broken. (also note that using autoreconf2.13 on 
pristine source returns error about missing files that the patched version 
Anyway, the patch doesn't break compatibility with automake 1.4.
And for libtool, it is not supposed to break anything, but Murphy's law could
