The problem was that autoreconf needed to be run to pickup the changes

Someone will need to resubmit the package for review and packaging. If
I see sugar packages being retired/orphaned I pick them up myself but
I do not have the time to go through the review process and get it
re-added to the package set.
Ultimately my free time to do sugar related tasks these days is almost
zero so for those that do have an interest in keeping SoAS and sugar
in general in Fedora are going to need to assist me, and preferably
earlier in the cycle not moments before GA, otherwise it will go away.
