Bug Description

During rebuild testing:

 cd /build/buildd/pygobject-2.18.0 && /bin/bash /build/buildd/pygobject-2.18.0/missing --run automake-1.10 --gnu
/build/buildd/pygobject-2.18.0/missing: line 54: automake-1.10: command not found
WARNING: `automake-1.10' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
         you modified `Makefile.am', `acinclude.m4' or `configure.ac'.
         You might want to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages.
         Grab them from any GNU archive site.
cd /build/buildd/pygobject-2.18.0 && /bin/bash /build/buildd/pygobject-2.18.0/missing --run autoconf

You have another version of autoconf. It may work, but is not guaranteed to.
If you have problems, you may need to regenerate the build system entirely.
To do so, use the procedure documented by the package, typically `autoreconf'.

Nice, thanks! Will upload in a minute.

As discussed on irc: adjusted changelog a little bit and dropped autom4te.cache hunks from the patch.

I don't know, sorry. Don't know enough about the package.
This was just a dumb fix, I looked at what was failing and fixed that, didn't look any deeper.
