The process that includes people reading and understanding and acting on messages. Complicating the messages complicates the process.

Better would be to have plain './autogen.sh' default './autogen.sh all'
instead of to './autogen.sh autoconf'

AFAIR, last time you tried this, some people here objected to forcing
them install Git hooks.

They would not be forced under my most recent proposal. They could run './autogen.sh autoconf' rather than plain './autogen.sh'. All that would be changed would be a minor simplification in the default.

Had you typed './autogen.sh all' instead of './autogen.sh' you wouldn't have needed to read and understand and act on its final diagnostic, and this would have saved a bit of time. The idea is to make 'all' the default for ./autogen.sh, as a timesaver for the typical process.
