erratic autoconf emacsen-common bug

Greetings!  This turned up recently in autobuilding gcl:

Setting up autoconf (2.57-10) ...
ERROR: emacsen-common being used before being configured.
ERROR: This is likely a bug in the autoconf package, which needs to
ERROR: add one of the appropriate dependencies.
ERROR: See /usr/share/doc/emacsen-common/debian-emacs-policy.gz
ERROR: for details.

Funny thing is, its quite erratic.  I suppose the autobuilders might
leave emacsen-common configured in some circumstances?  Anyway, I've
filed a bug with autoconf -- is there a way I can work around this
temporarily to ensure that gcl build everywhere?  Pre-depending on
emacsen-common comes to mind, but I think policy states that
'permission' is needed first.

Advice appreciated,
