Hi Ralf,

One possibility: set up a cron job on savannah that periodically
fetches the latest autoconf sources, builds, and then commits the
generated INSTALL into a new project containing just this sort
of auto-generated file.

For just one file, it's not worth it.  But there are others, e.g.,
find's regexprops.texi.
