so don't put a build-depends and simply use the conditional form put
forth earlier. then any maintainer that has autotools-dev installed
will make config.sub and config.guess be included in the diff.gz, but
if the autobuilders don't have it, the conditionals will simply return
false and make will move on.

an alternative would be to install autotools-dev on the autobuilders
permanently and to put the build-depends in.

so this can all be solved by changing the -test... lines to lines that
employ proper conditionals.
