now that users can depclean versions, people are finding broken packages

here's some notes for you devs ... use autotools.eclass and set the WANT 
variables and the eclass should take care of DEPEND for you

need autoconf-2.13 (oh god why) ?  then do this:
WANT_AUTOCONF=2.1
inherit autotools

how about automake-1.7 ?  then do this:
WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.7
WANT_AUTOCONF=2.1
inherit autotools

dont care what version, you just want the latest ?  then do this:
WANT_AUTOMAKE=latest
WANT_AUTOCONF=latest
inherit autotools
the autotools eclass will mung "latest" into the correct values
