Did you look into this?  It is #325372.

Oh, did I just not notice it?  If you update autotools foo at
compile-time, then you should consider removing them in the "clean"
target; this avoids them in the diff, which makes it that much
shorter, cleaner, more "source"like, and more readable.

BTW, I think

+       ln -sf /usr/share/misc/config.sub .

Is not well-behaved for sufficiently old and obscure ln; the . needs
to be a name, instead (but I don't have a reference for this).

CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" ./configure

The suggested way to do this is with ./configure CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" ..
check ./configure --help |head.

Of course you can lose the #docbook-to-man example if you don't intend
to use it.
