We should keep it. The concept is that the user should be able to build and 
test the trunk without installing too many development tools.

Nowadays, we don't use any cutting-edge features, so this might be not that 
important. But when we used Automake in GRUB Legacy, we had to deploy some 
features present only in newer versions of Automake, so the version 
requirement was very severe. This made the lives of testers uncomfortable.
