As developers, we often make silly demands of one another :-)

It's not about putting "support requirements" on the build system, 
it's about keeping the build system convenient for the developers 
who build it.  We certainly would benefit from having those requirements
made explicit in both buildconf and README.

Right- the release manager needs to ensure that a ./configure script is
available in the distribution (which reminds me that I didn't remember 
to do that for 1.2_rc2).
