I'd prefer the re-autotool stuff to be part of the user build process.
I was going to propose this for ImageMagick, as it reduces the patches
from approx 1 Mb down to 2 lines.  Much easier to understand.

Hmm...

I think Chuck better look at the buildscript, there seem to be a couple 
of (unnecessary?)kludges throughout the script.  For instance, 
re-autoconfilizing the autoscripts shouldn't be a necessary step in the 
user build process.  You should do that ahead of time, delete the 
autom4ate.cache and other garbage, then make a diff against the 
results...  There are a few other things that could be improved in the 
source package ( but I'll leave it to the veteran package maintainers to 
comment ), but AFAICT the binary package works fine.

Cheers,
Nicholas
