I thought it would be achieved by the AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE invocation in configure.ac:
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([1.13 silent-rules parallel-tests dist-xz dist-lzip])

Perhaps it might not work with older automake?

Good idea, done:

Daiki,

The autogen.sh file lists some dependencies:
# This script requires:
# - Autoconf
# - Automake
# - Wget
# - Git
# - XZ Utils

IMO these comments should be moved to HACKING. And, if necessary, add the required version numbers there.

`autogen.sh` needs macro `AM_EXTRA_RECURSIVE_TARGETS` which is provided by automake 1.13 (see https://travis-ci.org/krichter722/gettext/builds/172155647 for details). It'd be nice if `autogen.sh` would fail with a verbose error message and give a hint that automake 1.13 needs to be installed rather than just complain about the missing macro.

experience with v0.19.8.1-14-gd2a29c9
