In bug #262021, Norman Ramsey reported that the "autoreconf" script provided by the autoconf package runs automake. Since at the time autoconf merely recommended automaken, instead of depending on it, this could fail. To fix the bug, I changed the recommendation to a dependency.
autoconf can work perfectly fine without automake/libtool/intltool/whatever.I know a few projects which use handwritten Makefile.inS and autoconf to process them (no automake involved). So making it a hard Dependency is wrong imho. I'd suggest changing it back to Recommends.
