Follow-up Comment #3:

Daiki fixed the information in the HACKING file.

I think that's all that needs to be done.

> 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.

This would be overkill. We do add all kinds of checks into 'configure',
because the person who runs 'configure' is not meant to have special knowledge
about the package or particular debugging skills. But the person who
reconfigures the package can be assumed to have looked in the HACKING file and
to have debugging skills.
