I think we should be much stricter for the releases we make and rather
leninent at buildconf-time.

I think Joe's proposed bumping up to a mandatory autoconf 2.5x (for everyone)
because we keep getting nailed on autoconf 2.13 bugs.  That's goodness.  And,
I think we should enforce libtool 1.5.10 for any future release that we
produce (i.e. in httpd-dist/tools/   If a developer has
anything above libtool 1.3, it'll work (for some definition of 'work') - but
they're on their own if they run into problems.

Of course, if we posted 2.1.2 as a 'public' beta, then we could start to get
feedback if the ac2.59/lt1.5.10 combo breaks anyone.  =)  -- justin
