If you patch the source to accept automake-1.10 and verify that things
work well with it, then you could send that upstream. Many projects
simply haven't updated their autoconf/automake files to recognize and
use automake-1.10 yet. Unless there is some specific reason the
software doesn't accept 1.10, that's what I would do.

I never met a morphosis I didn't like.
