Thanks for looking at this guys. In most cases, you can just change the 
automake BR to automake or automake16. I did find the occasional package that 
needed its .am files patched, but I think I submitted patches for the worst 
ones 2 years ago.

I was also wondering about byacc. Is it needed for anything that bison can't 
cover? In many cases, the configure script will look for both and chose which 
ever it finds. In a couple places, Makefiles had to be patched to use 

bison -y

but otherwise the substitution works fine.
