This is a known problem with Redhat and other Redhat based distributions (AFAIK, Mandrake and Helloween have the same problem).
In brief: The latest official version of automake is 1.4, but some vendors package unreleased snapshots taken at some time in the past from automake's development sources.
A similar incident recently seems to have occured with autoconf where some other vendors have picked up a development version called 2.14.1 ;)
Joel uses Redhat, therefore he uses Redhat's proprietary automake-1.4a.
IMO, Joel better might consider using automake-1.4 in future ;)
