I just checked the patch but I'm not clear how this new feature should
be used commit message says semicolon but eg shows usage of comma
instead. I installed the patched version and did following


I was expecting it to generate automake (>= 1:1.12) but instead
generated version was automake (<= 12) which seems to me as wrong
because there is no such version in archive.

I may be wrong in understanding the usage so can you please clarify how
the patch is supposed to be used?.
