Description of problem:
/usr/bin/gnome-autogen.sh dies with automake 1.11
gnome-autogen.sh will not accept automake > 1.10:
case $REQUIRED_AUTOMAKE_VERSION in
1.4*) automake_progs="automake-1.4" ;;
1.5*) automake_progs="automake-1.10 automake-1.9 automake-1.8 automake-1.7 automake-1.6 automake-1.5" ;;

1.7*) automake_progs="automake-1.10 automake-1.9 automake-1.8 automake-1.7" ;;
1.8*) automake_progs="automake-1.10 automake-1.9 automake-1.8" ;;
1.9*) automake_progs="automake-1.10 automake-1.9" ;;

this is fixed upstream and in Fedora 11 (gnome-common-2.26.0-2.fc11) but it still around in Fedora 10 (gnome-common-2.18.0).
Please update gnome-common or patch it so it can work in Fedora 10 also.

I was hoping that the automake maintainer would rethink his desire to update
F-9 and F-10 to the latest automake but that doesn't seem like it's going to
happen. Building new packages.
