I've discovered another problem, however.  For some reason, when using
this approach, the libraries that are built don't get linked against

$ ldd libaspell.so.15.0.1
	libaspell-common-0.50.2.so => /home/nelson/debian/aspell/aspell-0.50.2/common/.libs/libaspell-common-0.50.2.so (0x400b9000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40115000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)

Therefore, if you install and attempt to use the libraries, you get
relocation errors such as:

/usr/bin/perl: relocation error: /usr/lib/libaspell.so.15: undefined symbol: __10istrstreamiPCci

However, if you don't re-run the auto* chain and just use upstream's
generated files, the libraries are linked properly:

$ ldd libaspell.so.15.0.1
        libaspell-common-0.50.2.so => /home/nelson/tmp/aspell-0.50.2/common/.libs/libaspell-common-0.50.2.so (0x400ba000)
        libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 => /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 (0x4010d000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x40156000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40177000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)

though the previously mentioned bug with libtool failing to install all
of the libraries will still bite.

What's causing this linking problem?  libtool?  auto* something or

People said I was dumb, but I proved them!
