I was just summing up what I learned from this thread for now.

Let's repeat this: (correnct me if I'm wrong)

Autoconf (w/o automake) offers no means to tell additional m4
include pathes (eg. in configure.ac), so that just calling
autoreconf (w/o any additional parameters!) can do a full
regeneration all on its own.

Right ?
