more modern autoconf support (read works on) more modern platforms and  
produces less warnings.

A way to get around the dependency on more modern autoconf at build  
time is to distribute a a patch to configure (and related files) in  
your package.

If automake 1.9 and autoconf 2.59 works for you, it should be ok on  
your platform.
