Is the automake 1.9 requirement going to affect a lot of people? I switched to
the "tar-ustar" format in order to allow the inclusion of packaging/macosx in
the distribution. An alternative to requiring automake 1.9 might be to shorten
the paths in packaging/macosx/Resources/themes/Clearlooks-Quicksilver-OSX/.
(Another alternative might be to ditch tar altogether an use zip files for the
distribution...)
OS X 10.4.11 has automake 1.6.3; the Leopard I have at the office has 
automake 1.10.  I don't know what versions various Linux distributions 
or flavors of BSD have.
If it's an issue, could we manually attempt to set AMTAR to a 
ustar-capable tar in the configure script?
