Yes. Very old versions of automake (<1.6) do not allow the "var+= bla" syntax.
But versions this old should not be used anyways to build the code.
Actually, the version definition in the top Makefile.am should prevent usage
of old automakes with these files. You should get a warning.
AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = foreign 1.6
