Derek> What's the 'missing' approach?

When autoconf or automake is not found, the script `missing' is then
used, and touches the products.

~/src/am % ./missing --help                                      nostromo 17:21
./missing [OPTION]... PROGRAM [ARGUMENT]...

Handle `PROGRAM [ARGUMENT]...' for when PROGRAM is missing, or return an
error status if there is no known handling for PROGRAM.

  -h, --help      display this help and exit
  -v, --version   output version information and exit
  --run           try to run the given command, and emulate it if it fails

Supported PROGRAM values:
  aclocal      touch file `aclocal.m4'
  autoconf     touch file `configure'
  autoheader   touch file `'
  automake     touch all `' files
  bison        create `[ch]', if possible, from existing .[ch]
  flex         create `lex.yy.c', if possible, from existing .c
  help2man     touch the output file
  lex          create `lex.yy.c', if possible, from existing .c
  makeinfo     touch the output file
  tar          try tar, gnutar, gtar, then tar without non-portable flags
  yacc         create `[ch]', if possible, from existing .[ch]
