autoreconf may need to be invoked differently depending on source.

For instance, any package based on dbs must first:

1. unpack the source.
2. run autoreconf.
3. create a new diff.

(I do not know if this will still be relevant when dpkg-source v2
enters mainstream use; I suspect it will be).

Having a standard way of doing this non-automatically sounds like a good
idea to me.

Also, when I last tried running autoreconf, it didn't update the
Makefiles, I had to run automake seperately for that (don't ask me
why; I just wanted to get it going and wasn't interested in debugging
autoreconf to find out why).
