Note that a recent discussion of this is relevent.

Personally I would include touch commands to bring the timestamps
after the diff patch is applied into relative conformance with the
timestamps of the files for when the patch was made and remove the
build depends on automake.  Although the previous discussion made good

as long as you champion the process to completion.
