You're absolutely right, 'autoreconf' does the job. But IMHO, I think that
autotools should not generate anything in the source directory. Keep only a
generic configure in the source that will generate in a object directory all
the autotools files would be more appropriate, and there will be a clean
separation between generated and source files (and avoid any source tree
But I can live with this solution provided that I known all the files
generated by the autotools in each directory to put the coirrect subversion
