--- Comment #5 from Thomas Koenig <tkoenig at gcc dot gnu.org> ---
It seems that automake 1.15.1 fixed the issue.

This is not really a regression, it is just relying on an old version
finally started to break things.

So, it seems it is finally time to update all the auto* tools
for gcc. I don't think using a hand-patched version like in
comment #3 is really an option.
