Boost the automake version required to 1.9.
(Currently, configure.in also specifies the minimum autoconf and automake versions, but the check for the automake version doesn't produce an immediate failure - instead, you might get a flood of configure.in:16: option `tar-ustar' not recognized errors *after* configure.in:16: require version 1.9, but have 1.x.x and the diagnostic isn't as clear.) svn path=/trunk/; revision=25242
