You make a good point.  The question in my mind is which versions
(plural) of autotools should be installed?  Perhaps the most recent
version and then a discussion of the issues and a generic "install
additional versions as required like this" section would be more
appropriate than us trying to decide in advance what versions a
developer will need.
