is there a recommended ordering of various config macros, namely:

I doubt arbitrary ordering can work, but I'm not finding a recommended order
in the manual. The Texinfo and Hello configure.ac files use the above, which
works, but I don't know what variations are possible/supported.

I know AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE isn't Autoconf, of course, but I throw it in since it
is so often present. (I think AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE does require AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR
to be called before it.)

As things are, I can put AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR even before AC_INIT, and it
seemingly still works (as far as autoconf is concerned). Not that I want to do
it or think it's a good idea, but a user was quite confused about which order
to be using.

Mostly just wondering about documentation here ... --thanks, karl.
