Shouldn't 'autoreconf' be the right answer to regenerate all of the
autotools files after a clean checkout?  Isn't that the tool designed
to do the right thing to bootstrap the project?

You're absolutely right, 'autoreconf' does the job. But IMHO, I think that
autotools should not generate anything in the source directory. Keep only a
generic configure in the source that will generate in a object directory all
the autotools files would be more appropriate, and there will be a clean
separation between generated and source files (and avoid any source tree

But I can live with this solution provided that I known all the files
generated by the autotools in each directory to put the coirrect subversion
'ignore' property.
