Thanks, Alex, good question. GNU Automake does in fact require Autoconfig. When we did our initial analysis we looked at instances where developers were using components of Make, not the entire project, and also instances where they were using components of Autoconfig, and we reported on those numbers. If, however, a developer was using most or all of Make they would need all of Autoconfig, and in that case the numbers reported would be identical.
Thanks for paying such close attention.
