Thanks for the report!  I'll address that.

I have a question: I'm willing to change the calling convention of
autoreconf: instead of performing more or less a find(1) to find
the configure.in, .ac, run only on the configure.ac,.in specified
on the cmd line (possibly several of them), defaulting to that in the
current dir.

Then, use AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS to find the other configure.ac, .in.

Why?  Because it is common to have other trees in the working directory,
for instance the result of a make distcheck etc., and one does not
want to have autoreconf autoreconf them.

Would that be OK with your use?
