Okay, I've installed and tested these packages on my machine.  They seem 
to work okay on a small test project -- both stable version and devel 
version.  Also, all four packages perform as well as they each ever have 
on their own make check's:

   autoconf-2.13  : expected passes 226 unexpected failures 33 (*)
   autoconf-2.52  : All 155 tests successfull
   automake-1.4p5 : All 195 tests passed
   automake-1.5   : All 323 tests passed

(*) This is the same as always.

Note that I had the version of mktemp installed.

Comments, anyone?  Corinna, does this "release" address your concerns?
