Do we (or should we) be requiring autoconf and automake for end users? My
understanding was the developers would run such programs, and provide the
resulting configure script and Makefile for end-users.

The "problem" with these tools is that there have been several non-compatible
versions that became popular; plus, we should keep the required external tools
to a minimum.

...counter-arguments are welcome.
