Well, the major one would be this:
New in 1.6a:
* It is no longuer a requirement to use AM_CONFIG_HEADER instead of

And from 1.6:
New in 1.6:
* Autoconf 2.52 is required.
* `AC_INIT AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(tarname,version)' is an obsolete construct.
  You can now use `AC_INIT(pkgname,version) AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE' instead.
  (Note that "pkgname" is not "tarname", see the manual for details.)
  It is also possible to pass a list of global Automake options as
  first argument to this new form of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.

Other than that I don't see any reasons, and from what I gather that doesn't
make it very 1.5 friendly..
