Thanks for spotting this.
I'm unfamiliar with autotools, Olaf added these configure/bootstrap things  for me when there was a name change in internal core Octave (is_cell -> iscell, etc.) that broke csv2cell and friends.

The fact that this particular stanza doesn't do a thing (as the io package just works with it) is an indication for me that it serves no purpose.
Can it be deleted?

io 2.4.13 is out, and the version in DESCRIPTION is correct, but in src/configure.ac, it still says this:

AC_INIT([io], [2.4.10], [Philip Nienhuis <prnienhuis@users.sf.net>])

The attached patch fixes the version number there. But it will immediately be out of date, since work on 2.4.14/2.5.0 will be opened up soon.
