At least some of these scripts are also usable other than from 
automake-generated code (I don't know if they're used like that in GCC, 
but some projects use them like that).  New versions should be compatible 
with older automake, and I don't think we should be downgrading these 
scripts to older versions (which is what this patch would do).
