Because we ship the 'configure' file etc. and that is all that we
support in build environments: autoconf etc. should not be a requirement
to build the code.

Only if not done in such a way that it was optional and disabled by
default in build environments (though a non-fatal warning message would
be OK).

E.g. configure --enable-autoreconf would require the autoconf tools to
be present and then cause the makefiles to detect when they are
out-of-date and attempt to reconfigure themselves and relaunch etc.
