Well, this is all old (or buggy) packages of course.

Yes.  It has been there for at least months now.
The workaround was to ./bootstrap after each cvs update.
Except now even after bootstrap some of the autotools are being
invoked again (I don't know which change, and of Libtool or Automake,
caused this).

A fix would be to overwrite each automake rule for invoking
the autotools: touch the $fakes before and remove them afterwards.
And also split the build of the test suite dirs out, else this
whole thing remains completely impractical.
