Persons who feel the urge to build software locally rather than install
the lovely shiny Debian packages <plug /> would do well to at least
install the autotools-dev package.  Its purpose is to help developers
work around upstream sources that have out-of-date autoconf/libtool
helper files.

 autotools-dev: Update infrastructure for config.{guess,sub} files
 This package installs an up-to-date (from CVS) version of config.guess
 and config.sub, used by the automake and libtool packages.  It provides
 the canonical copy of those files for other packages as well.
