The latest released version of Automake is 1.8.5 (see :

Fedora Development currently carries the package "automake-1.8.4-1".

Automake 1.8.5 has the following bugfixes :

- Define DIST_SUBDIRS even when the `no-dist' or `cygnus' options are
used so that `make distclean' and `make maintainer-clean' can work.

- Define AR and ARFLAGS even when only EXTRA_LIBRARIES are defined.

- Fix many rules to please FreeBSD make, which runs commands with `sh -e'.

- Polish diagnostic when no input file is found.

1.8.5 has actually been built.  Looking into why it isn't in FC devel.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-07-07 08:17:52 EDT
1.8.5 should be back in rawhide now.
