I was hoping that they would be included in the updates for the
developer tools not the OS itself. Since Apple is just bundling the tools
instead of developing them-even more so.
The default install in Tiger that I have for automake (for example) is
1.6.3 which was released in mid-2002. There have been steady updates in
the autotoolchain (save autoconf) since then. Current stable release is
1.9something. Since there have been OS releases since 2002, I don't think
it has been updated.
Thanks for the reply,

One obvious and fairly safe answer is "in the next release", but it's not
clear to me that this is what you're asking. Software Updates are generally
only done to fix critical problems or address potential/actual security
issues. I don't think there's anything in the auto* tools which qualify them
for software update.
Is there any reason why the autotool updates are coming so slow?
I do believe we've updated them with almost every major release of the OS.
See above as to why we don't update them in SUs.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
