 automake was recently updated from version 1.15.1 to 1.16.1. libsecret
 explicitly wants a version of automake from 1.10 to 1.15, so it fails with
 1.16. We probably just need to add 1.16 to the list of acceptable
 versions, as upstream previously did for
 1.12]. I don't know why they're being so restrictive of automake versions;
 it seems like they should assume that newer versions will work, instead of
 assuming that they won't. I don't see an upstream bug report about this;
 one should be filed.
