Not a problem.  I've pushed the patch with the updated attribution, with
this ChangeLog entry:

2010-02-10  Eric Blake  <ebb9 at byu.net>

	Avoid uninitialized use of $U.
	* lib/autoconf/general.m4 (_AC_LIBOBJS_NORMALIZE): Ensure $U is
	set if automake did not define it.
	* THANKS: Update.
	Reported by Heiko Schlichting, via Julien Élie.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
