I think I got a partial answer...


I was having issues not related to bug report. I was emerging a non-bin version of firefox when I got the error message:


 * Done with patching
 * Running eautoreconf in '/var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-34.0.5-r1/work/mozilla-release' ...
 * This package has a configure.in file which has long been deprecated.  Please
 * update it to use configure.ac instead as newer versions of autotools will die
 * when it finds this file.  See https://bugs.gentoo.org/426262 for details.


A quick look at the bug autotools/autotools-utils eclasses should rename configure.in to configure.ac internally (automake-1.14 compatibility) leads me to believe that automake-1.14 changes things...but it was working for me?


Why 1.14 was downgrade is beyond me and I really wish someone could explain this, please?

automake 1.14 is still available in the tree, but packages are expressly not looking for it? (see link to post above)
