sadly, you do :))
   aclocal && autoconf && autoheader && automake auto
configure && make && make dist AUTOHEADER=false
... booom!!

(as a side-note, you know that from, and
 I just configure newstuff autotools to end up in local/cross-tools)

it's no problem if autoheader would simply fail and exit (like it
did before) but what has making me mad that's the almostzero-size that is silently put into the tarball. (Mis)using
the am_maintainer_mode option has proven to be a good path to 
let things work out better. After a couple of tries, I have now
chosen to overwrite with a value that let's ME continue to work
with the project even if I hit again the problem

as a side-note:
Actually, I did jump on this problem only while checking why
the rpm-builds did fail, and know what, the rpm-system puts a
whole lot of stuff on top that could be broken then or else. So
it took me a good peek to see it is in the dist-target itself.

rpm: dist $(PACKAGE).spec
    rpm -ta $(PACKAGE)-$(VERSION).tar.gz

at the moment I am stuck with *all* project being unable to
cross-compile win32 dlls, again the fault of automake-1.4beef?
I'll check that later with 1.4-p5 (is it 5 now?)...

happy hacking everyone,
but now I'm going to see a bit of the sun out there,
