Well, sub-package (clisp) is already down enough, and its configure
script is invoked with a simple hand-written 'configure' script (656
bytes), and at the moment everything works, but I have to manually
invoke the sequence: automake && autoconf && configure && ... (actually
I put it in the script, but that's what autoreconf is supposed to do.)

So, the build process works, but I'm interested whether the error
message from th Subject: is autoreconf bug or its limitation?
