	devel/automake has two semi-related problems:

	1- It has a .texi file that needs texinfo 4.2 or later to
	   rebuild, but only has TEXINFO_REQD=4.0

	2- It regenerates the .info file unnecessarily if you are
	   in the wrong timezone.  In the doc subdirectory compare
	   and with the local timezone set to Australia/Victoria:

		ls -l automake.texi
		[ ... ]  258425 Dec 10 05:11 automake.texi
		env TZ=UTC ls -l automake.texi
		[ ... ]  258425 Dec  9 18:11 automake.texi


		head -1 version.texi
		@set UPDATED 9 December 2003

	   The makefile regenerates a new version.texi with

		@set UPDATED 10 December 2003

	   in it, and then because the version.texi has changed it
	   tries to rebuild


	In a timezone more easterly than UTC+5 on a machine with
	texinfo earlier than 4.1:

		cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/automake; make


	None given.
