Severity: wishlist

This patch adds a feature to run auto{conf,make} when the package maintainer
wants to do so by enabling it in debian/rules.

For example, in debian/rules:


This will get autotools.mk to run aclocal, automake and autoconf in the source
tree before invoking ./configure. As for aclocal, it will only be run when
"aclocal.m4" is present, and in addition the "-I m4" parameter will be passed
only when the "m4" directory is present either.
