I would have to search for it. I don't have any systems with the right
tools installed to generate that, I think there is usually a lot of
version dependence in the automake stuff. If you were going to update
it, there probably isn't much point in updating to anything other than
their most recent stable version, though.
I can't imagine this problem effects too many people, though. It takes
a particularly strange combination of compiler and system versions on
an HP-UXB.11 machine for it to show up...
