My recollection is that our automake version has some patches but the
bigger problem is that automake dropped support for some of the old
Cygnus early features. Those were in use and we would rather move
to waf then invest effort in doing major work on the autotools version.

Which files  claim to need 1.13?

and be sure that RTEMS tools are at the front of your path. But you
know that.
