But this is also problematic for license !
Even in the case in which we accept my above rational, it is still possible
that the configure.ac contains custom macros with a bad license...
Hence, if we were to decide on a general basis, it would be either to check
for all configure.ac or for no one.. Do you think one of these possibilities
is reasonable ?
