It's a slight improvement, but not by much.

This means that every user of any distribution using auto-version-selecting
autotool wrappers will need to set an environment variable.

This is like configure asking you to manually set things which it could test

the idea of using aclocal, even only optionally, simply not acceptable for
some reason?
