[Build-common-hackers] Bug#292189: GNOME applications don't all use autotools

Severity: wishlist

I'm packaging a Python GNOME application (meld) which doesn't use
autotools.  However if I include gnome.mk then autotools.mk gets pulled
in, which breaks when it can't find any of the autoconf tools.

Please let me include gnome.mk without using autotools!
