Not that I know.  Also I wonder if other autotool-files can be updated:
build/ltmain.sh, build/build/config.guess etc.

IIRC I looked at updating them once, but they are patched versions and I
didn't know who patched them for what.  Maybe FreeBSD patches from
Kurt's machine.  Nor could I test if using an unpatched version breaks

Anyway, it might be best to use clean autotools when rebuilding config
files, to avoid mysteries like that.
