Yet all other automake/autoconf ports are marked deprecated already, and
they tell users to use automake18 / autoconf259 instead:

$ grep DEPRECATED devel/automake*/Makefile
devel/automake/Makefile:DEPRECATED=   Please use devel/automake18 instead
devel/automake14/Makefile:DEPRECATED= Please use devel/automake18 instead
devel/automake15/Makefile:DEPRECATED= Please use devel/automake18 instead
devel/automake17/Makefile:DEPRECATED= Please use devel/automake18 instead
$ grep DEPRECATED devel/autoconf*/Makefile
devel/autoconf/Makefile:DEPRECATED=     Please use devel/autoconf259 instead
devel/autoconf213/Makefile:DEPRECATED=  Please use devel/autoconf259 instead
devel/autoconf253/Makefile:DEPRECATED=  Please use devel/autoconf259 instead
devel/autoconf257/Makefile:DEPRECATED=  Please use devel/autoconf259 instead

How does that correlate with your statement that automake18/autoconf259
should not be used/installed yet? Is it wise to mark those ports
deprecated already, even though their replacement is not ready yet? Or
did I miss something?
