Maybe they do given that the "-N" doesn't mean the number of patches
applied. automake 1.9.6-0 is missing, though.

Maybe just remove that directory then? I doubt an old 4.7 snapshot
helps and it confuses things.

I think -0 had no patches and -1 one patch. Maybe either remove old
patch files and add a README to say what patch goes to what -N, or
always leave them so the number matches? Right now it's a mixture -
some old patches are still there and others must have been removed.
Anyway, another difference is that TOOL_VERSIONS says Autoconf 2.59-3
and the email says 2.59-4.
