Does cloog-0.15.9 check for the exact version, rather than using
something like AS_VERSION_COMPARE and checking for a minimum version?
Has that been addressed in the cloog sources since?

I don't mind, but it's a good idea to ensure that for the next
major version bump of ppl things are prepared to (hopefully)
not require cascades of major bumps more than necessary.
