Thanks for the report and for a fix.

I found this problem in cairo/autogen.sh and committed it. Did you see
it anywhere else?

Meanwhile, I'm not sure if the version checks are properly set at the
minimum working version. For example, a user of Mac OS X just reported
that the version checks fail with the dfault automake there (1.6.3?). Is
anyone in a position to check if that was a false negative, and if so,
to back up automake_min_version? Thanks.
