Bug#376718: Please stop Build-Depending on automake

Package: kdoc
Version: 2.0a54-3
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

The automake maintainer is working towards reclaiming
the automake package name, which currently rests on 
automake1.4, the oldest version of automake. Your package, 
kdoc, Build-Depends on automake, hence this bug 
report. Please see http://wiki.debian.org/AutomakeTransition 
for more information on this transition.

It appears that you package does not use the automake 
package in the build process. This is normal, as most 
package do not require automake at build time. The 
attached patch removes the build dependency.
