... but of course, doing this pulls in dh-autoreconf, which lets me
drop the autotools-dev dependency entirely, since the "autoreconf"
addon is documented to  subsume the "autotools" addon.

This is true. This turned out to be mostly a matter of bumping the
debhelper compatibility level to "9". It looks like these all even
make it through the configure script...

Thanks for being so patient with me!

Fixed these in <http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/tack/tack_1.07-1~mentors2.dsc>,
with changelog:

tack (1.07-1~mentors2) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
  * Adopt package.
    Closes: #660140 (ITP for this package).
  * Switch to dpkg-source 3.0 (quilt) format.
  * Use dh-autoreconf to regenerate the configure script during build
    + Build-depends on dh-autoreconf and autoconf-dickey.
    + It also takes care of pulling up-to-date config.guess and config.sub
      scripts in from autotools-dev
    + Drop build-depends on autotools-dev.
  * Fix "hyphen-used-as-minus-sign" warning from lintian.
  * Update package to standards version 3.9.2.
  * Add a debian/watch file again.
  * Bump debhelper build-depends: to (>= 7.0.50~), since we use
    override_dh_<foo> targets.
  * Enable build warnings.
  * Add Vcs-Browser: and Vcs-Git: fields to debian/control.
  * Install a symlink CHANGES.gz -> changelog.gz in the doc directory.
  * Update debian/copyright to current (nearly-1.0) DEP5 format.
  * Add support for dpkg-buildflags(1) by bumping debhelper to
    compatibility level 9.
