You can call auto* BEFORE you package it, and add the proper touch stuff in
debian/rules to take care of the timestamp skew caused by the diff.

This way, autobuilders and Debian users do not neet to run auto*, and you
can remove it from your build-dependencies.  I do the samething for all my
packages in CVS.
