But since configure is a generated file the patch should only modify
configure.in. The same holds for Makefile, which can be generated by
Makefile.in, which itself can be generated by Makefile.am. etc. etc.

I'm not sure changing the upstream default here makes sense, since no
default will work for everyone anyway. In this particular case one
should use libpaper anyway.

I still think that it makes more sense to seperate those patches into
multiple ones though.
