autotools-dev README.Debian confusion



     The README for autotools-dev includes:

|                     you should call configure this way (for autoconf 2.52):
| 
| export DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE  ?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
| export DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE ?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE)
| 
| # FOR AUTOCONF 2.52 AND NEWER ONLY
| ifeq ($(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE), $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE))
|   confflags += --build $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
| else
|   confflags += --build $(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE) --host $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
| endif

     One of these must be for autoconf <2.52, and the other for
autoconf =>2.52.  Which is which?

Regards,

Bob
