      Description

      Ubuntu 12.04 contains automake-1.11, and the bootstrap.sh script requires 1.13 or later:

      ~/dev/thrift$ ./bootstrap.sh
      configure.ac:103: warning: macro `AM_EXTRA_RECURSIVE_TARGETS' not found in library
      configure.ac:103: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_EXTRA_RECURSIVE_TARGETS
            If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
            See the Autoconf documentation.

      A workaround for this issue is to install automake-1.14 via community PPA:

      # add-apt-repository ppa:dns/gnu
      # apt-get update
      # apt-get install automake
      

      bootstrap.sh should check the version of automake and emit a nicer error message when 1.13 or later is not available.
