You still don't get what I was trying to do. I was rebuilding
libtool/auto* PACKAGE. Not crimson, not anything. The package, i.e.

Ok, but if you put a line like
BuildRequires: automake >= 1.7.9
in crimson.spec.in than anyone trying to build the package will be

And it will not prevent anyone from installing the game from RPM package.
