Done for libstdc++.

This would be preferred, but I think the continued migration upwards on
the 1.8.x automake versions is reflecting a desire to not get stuck on
any version, and instead track the current release. At least, that's how
I see it. 

If you are volunteering to keep everything in sync (perhaps by messages
such as this), I think it sounds like a great idea.
