Since I do all releases on Debian Linux and they occasionally apply patches
that make them deviate from the upstream versions, it was pointed out to me
that listing the exact Debian package name is probably better and more

Let's generate a docs/ file into the tarball with the details:

The current file the script generates for me looks like this:

--- snip ---
# Release tools

The following tools and their Debian package version numbers were used to
produce this release tarball.

- autoconf: 2.71-3
- automake: 1:1.16.5-1.3
- libtool: 2.4.7-7
- make: 4.3-4.1
- perl: 5.38.2-3.2
- git: 1:2.43.0-1+b1

# Reproduce the tarball

- Clone the repo and checkout the release tag
- Install the same set of tools + versions as listed above

## Do a standard build

- autoreconf -fi
- ./configure [...]
- make

## Generate the tarball

- ./maketgz [version]
