Newly released automake 1.13 is not supported by /usr/bin/ simply because automake versions are hardcoded in it, without version 1.13 . This[1] upstream bug report provides a patch that solves the issue (patch attached in here). Without it, all gnome git packages that call '' will fail to find lastet version of automake, as you can see from the attached log file.


Additional info:
* package version(s)

automake 1.13.1-1
gnome-common 3.6.0-1
This task depends upon

Things like this need to go upstream...

Yep, agree with you. Actually, as I already mentioned, it is in upstream's but tracker already. However, while a new source tarball is not available, some AUR packages will break and users will be like crazy asking flagging out-of-date. (that's not developer's problem, but, hey, help me :)

I double this bug, and add that the same problem occurs with aclocal-1.13: doesnt check over 1.12. For my notify-osd-customizable pkgbuild on AUR, I suggested a user to create two symlinks of these executables.
