I've tried a bunch of times to use dh_autoreconf. It needed to tweak a 
bit configure.ac and Makefile.am, not a big deal. But it always ended 
with this kind of error:
./configure: line 13374: syntax error near unexpected token `am'
./configure: line 13374: `XDT_I18N(am ar ast bn ca cs cy da de dz el 
en_GB es et eu fi fr gl he hu id is it ja ka kk ko lt lv mk nb nl nn pa 
pl pt pt_BR ro ru si sk sl sq sv tl_PH tr ug uk ur ur_PK zh_CN zh_TW )'

It's related to the XDT macros from the configure.ac. I couldn't figure 
out how to get rid of this. So that's why I've finally decided to patch 
aclocal.m4 and configure, even if I know it's not the best way to fix 
this issue.
