Follow-up Comment #2, bug #49497 (project gettext):

> It'd be nice if `autogen.sh` would fail with a verbose error message and
give a hint that automake 1.13 needs to be installed rather than just complain
about the missing macro.

I thought it would be achieved by the AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE invocation in
  AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([1.13 silent-rules parallel-tests dist-xz dist-lzip])

Perhaps it might not work with older automake?

> IMO these comments should be moved to HACKING. And, if necessary, add the
required version numbers there.

Good idea, done:
