Apparently, a good number of FreeBSD developers don't seem to agree
with you.

Exactly.  You don't get any tool name `autoconf' or `automake'
installed on FreeBSD (at least not through the package system), only
the versionized tools.  And autoconf/make-generated Makefiles seem to
not like this at all, at least "make distcheck" doesn't work out of
the box for me even though it did work for Ted, using a slightly
different versioning scheme (autofoo-X.YY instead of autofooXYY).

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
