Hmm, the oldest automake in current Debian is 1.11.6, which doesn't work
either. I guess the easiest way for me to make reflect
changes made in is manually with a text editor.

philipp@notebook4:~/binutils-2.25-x/binutils$ automake-1.11
aclocal.m4:16: warning: this file was generated for autoconf 2.64.
You have another version of autoconf.  It may work, but is not
guaranteed to.
If you have problems, you may need to regenerate the build system entirely.
To do so, use the procedure documented by the package, typically
`autoreconf'. error: Please use exactly Autoconf 2.64 instead of 2.69.
