For what it is worth, when I downloaded the Linux version, I ran into issues when attempting to build it. Rather than including copies of install-sh, depcomp, and missing, I had links to my system's copies in /usr/share/automake-1.12 .
The problem is I have automake 1.13. These should be linked to a non-versioned directory (if there is one), or just included in the tarball.
