On reconsideration, I recalled we weren't using automake before, so
that's new... sorry :)

Neither autoconf nor automake will be required to build published
sources, of course... I've been playing with the thought of automated
distro-packaging for dev sources, so people can try out the development
sources without having to install the extra GNU stuff... of course,
actually developing on the sources will still require them, if one has
to modify the build environment itself...
