I must say nack to using the automake 1.12.x series for now.
There are a few packages that fail with the 1.12.x series which i
considered when bumping/testing automake to the 1.11.x series because of
deprecated/removed features.
These packages need to be fixed before (example: neardal), otherwise the
bump would just introduce build errors.
Regards.

For this kind of fairly sensitive transitions, I think it'd be great to
do a allyespackageconfig build first, discard all the failing packages
(they are not too many packages failing at this point), and redo the
same experience with automake bumped. So we have a list of which
packages have to be fixed, and progressively go through each of them.

Best regards,

Thomas

Indeed. Don't forget to first configure a "full" toolchain (C++,
largefile, wchar, locale) so all packages are visible.
