         right thing when you re-run it. We ought to revamp the makefiles 
         to do the right AC_SUBST stuff rather than depend upon rewriting.

  +              One of the perceived deficiencies of automake is that it
  +              uses AC_SUBST too often, thereby slowing down the task of
  +              generating Makefiles significantly, because it applies
  +              dozens of substitutions to each Makefile.  And why?  Make's
  +              built-in macro processing is much more powerful, and
  +              combined with the include facility, generating Makefiles
  +              becomes simpler and faster.
