Could RSB automatically install autoconf/automake if the versions are too low?

Could RSB run an automake and autoconf check at the beginning of the process when building 4.10.x/4.11, and automatically add building autoconf and/or automake to the build set if the version is too low?

My assessment is this is only necessary for RTEMS versions 4.10.x and 4.11.0, because earlier versions of RTEMS would not need to check for autotools, our most obsolete supported host, Debian 5 (Lenny), has prepackaged autoconf-2.61 and automake-1.10, see: http://archive.debian.net/lenny/devel/
and newer versions of RTEMS may be shipping with the build-system software.

The versions for the Debian/Lenny? distro are: automake-1.10 and autoconf-2.61 while rtems-4.10.x requires automake-1.11.1 and autoconf-2.68.
