Automake 1.9 as minimal requirement is fairly acceptable. 1.9 was
released in 2004. Both 1.9 and 1.10 are widely available in
most distributions.

to handle the longer filenames.

I know that a few others had issue with this about a year ago, since
'tar-ustar' required atleast automake 1.9.  Since a year has now passed,
I'm hoping this is no longer an issue.

Will anyone have any issue with this?
