A "maintainer" build using automake 1.7.9 breaks with

 automake: DIST_COMMON was set with `HASH(0x85a22c8)=' and is now set with `+='
 ++++ die 'Can'\''t execute automake'

Upgrading to automake 1.9 solved the problem in this case.

How to repeat:
Build 5.1.10 from BitKeeper with automake 1.7.9.

Suggested fix:
Find a way to express this without DIST_COMMON that is a non
documented make variable.

Can't find a clean solution to this. I think the explicit
DIST_COMMON is used to exclude "storage/ndb/config/common.mk.am"
from it that otherwise would have automatically been added
by automake. And the exclusion is to avoid a potential
race when two parallel make runs try copy the same include

But I close this bug report anyway, as the manual states
the minimum automake version is 1.8.1 for MySQL 5.1.
