I don't know how to diagnose automake's failing, except to try on another FreeBSD, NetBSD or Linux system.
I see some ports that previously didn't list automake or autoconf as dependency now do, such as mutt.
It also looks like, if I have a useful system, I really should back it up, the whole OS + packages/ports, to another partition.
That would protect not only against a massive portupgrade/portmaster removing and failing to rebuild a port but also against messing the base system with an update that turns out to be buggy.
