Would this one be ok?

Regenration of the files can be done with automake >= 1.6.3 and autoconf 
  >= 2.57.

I tested it here localy, but I'm on automake 1.8. It would be great if 
anyone with an older non infected system could test this one :)

I'm willing to regenerate the files with automake 1.6.3 and 
autoconf-2.57 if the above patchlet cures the situation.

(Including Changelog etc. )
