I've switch xfwm4 to automake 1.6 yesterday. That wasn't a peacefull
migration, but it showed some flaws in my Makefile.am
So far, so good, I use automake 1.6 and autoconf 2.52
I think I can do the "automakization" (hey, I just invented another kewl
word ;-) ) for you if you wish, or I can provide support, as you prefer
