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 ?
