Why does autoconf depend on autoconf2.13?
Looking over the 'dpkg -L' output, it appears that all the files needed by
autoconf (now at 2.53) are provided in that package. It doesn't appear --
AFAICT -- to use anything from autoconf2.13.
So I tried to purge autoconf2.13 but dpkg bitched at me. I'm curious why.
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
