No, if a package do run auto* tools when building, then it means that
maintainer did some changes in config files.  He ran auto{conf,make}
before packaging, so with the suggested change, there is no need to add
AM_MAINTAINER_MODE to configure.{in,ac}, only debian/rules must be edited
to add --disable-maintainer-mode.
