Hmm, apparently I deleted AM_MAINTAINER_MODE almost four years ago in
0ebb7e31db85a179afdcd731fcc6b0e311084cb1, but I can't remember why and
the commit message doesn't explain.
In 9bcfc0ac547277d3a3f4e5ff0922450566ad8be8, Benjamin deleted
--enable-maintainer-mode from autogen.sh.

I'm not sure I understand the issue. Where would those timestamp skews
come from? The automake manual says something about CVS. Does it apply
to git as well?
