Ok, so ChangeLog modifications should be another patch?

I have a problem with autoreconf, when i run it with autoconf 2.69 it
says i need
exactly autoconf 2.64 so i install it and try to do autoreconf with
2.64 and this is what
i get:

aurelio-remonda@Remonda-PC:~/gcc/libstdc++-v3$ autoreconf
configure.ac:74: error: Autoconf version 2.65 or higher is required

You can see i am using my recently installed autoconf:
aurelio-remonda@Remonda-PC:~/gcc/libstdc++-v3$ which autoconf

I even try 2.65:
aurelio-remonda@Remonda-PC:~/gcc/libstdc++-v3$ which autoreconf

and got this:
aurelio-remonda@Remonda-PC:~/gcc/libstdc++-v3$ autoreconf
configure.ac:4: error: Please use exactly Autoconf 2.64 instead of 2.65.
../config/override.m4:12: _GCC_AUTOCONF_VERSION_CHECK is expanded from...
configure.ac:4: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal: error: echo failed with exit status: 1
autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

So i changed the version here:

And here:
m4_if(m4_defn([m4_PACKAGE_VERSION]), [2.69]

And did the autoreconf with 2.69 and that worked.
But Jonathan told me that i don't have to make those changes.
