I don't think we should do this.  Upping requirements on cvs build tools
is always a cost/benefit assessment, ie "does the benefit of upping
outweigh the pain of a whole bunch of people and the slew of questions
of "why doesn't this tool pick up that/give me errors/...".

In this particular case, there's very little benefit for lots of pain. 
Anyone who is running autogen.sh on arm can raise their hand right now
if they disagree.

Already doing that.  Latest tarball was generated with 1.5.6
