It works a bit better, now tests fail saying "Autoconf version 2.58 or
higher is required for this script" which is far more reasonable.

I am not sure what to do in these cases, sure the tools are old, but
people will download libtool-2.x and run ./configure; make; make check,
and it will fail simply because they have older automake & autoconf.

Should we print a warning at make check time warning users that their
versions of automake and autoconf are too old to run the testsuite?
