4) how many of these are in base/standard, which are allegedly frozen
   and trying to freeze respectively

The following required/important/standard packages build-depend on
automake (haven't checked tasks, though):

  db2                   required
  db3                   required
  shadow                required
  tar                   required
  textutils             required
  cyrus-sasl            important
  nano                  important
  libnss-db             standard
  make                  standard
  mtr                   standard
  pidentd               standard

Has anybody checked if all of the above still build?
