automake

So while Subversion proper doesn't use automake, neon does.

Twice now, I've seen people burned by the following problem:

   * developer tries to build, Subversion states that libtool or
     autoconf is too old.

   * developer upgrades to newest libtool and autoconf

   * suddenly neon won't build; complains of missing ltmain.sh or
     something.

   * developer wastes hours trying to figure out what's wrong

It turns out that the problem is that -automake- needs to be upgraded
as well to make neon build.

So, maybe our top-level buildcheck.sh should also check that automake
is new enough too, then?
