Don't you mean 2.13 and 2.14-1.1?

AFAIK, Heimdal requires CVS versions of both autoconf and
automake. Unfortunately there is no way around this, I think it is
because it has been so long since the last release of these vital
tools (IIRC).

I use the Debian version of these, packaged in experimental. 


(note: the date is more significant then the version)

They work great for Heimdal, but break other applications :-(, so I
have gone back to the last stable version for now (as I have stopped
playing around with Heimdal autotools stuff for the moment).
