Hey all -

A question for the group... I'm working on the build system changes
needed for the project split. I'm currently running into a bug in
Automake 1.9.5 and older that is causing me to have to do some fairly
nasty workarounds. The bug was fixed in AM 1.9.6, which has been out
for a couple of months now.

I was wondering what people would think about us upgrading our
requirements for the AM version to 1.9.6 for developers, so that I
don't have to add a bunch of nasty workarounds into the build
system. As usual, this would only affect developers -- users that
build from tarballs do not have to have AM installed.

Comments? If not, I'll assume that means you're all cool with me
making you all upgrade ;).
