Remember that this was related to log entry discussions not to the
patch.

Can this happen in a automake based project? I thought it just called
clean and removes also config.h, config.log, ... but as long as
configure.ac or a dependent M4 file isn't touched configure shouldn't be
called!??

Based on my own experience I find autoconf (generates configure) much
more difficult (at least the configuration: configure.ac, M4 handling)
than automake (generated Makefile templates) with it's tiny
Makefile.am's.

But the current build solution is OK until nobody objects (no, I'm mean,
if everyone agrees ("+1") to patches) if one tries to fix remaining errors
(such as no parallel make support during install, or depending on an
properly installed Subversion during "make install" (see e.g.
http://www.nabble.com/make-install-doesn't-install-td19177330.html which
contains even a minor patch which can be applied if
include/subversion-1/svn-revision.txt isn't used (which I think is
true))). And there is of course also the problem that installation isn't
just a simple

./configure
make
make install

but has to deal with subcomponents (such as javahl) differently and in a
fixed order.
