Yup, this is what I said in my first message about autoconf this morning. 

I know autoconf supports hacks like this.  My point was that Apache and
autoconf use a different architecture naming method, and so moving from
one to the other is going to be a painful process.

It's debatable whether it's easier with autoconf or with Configure... what
I do know is that Configure works well enough right now that I'm not
overly keen on breaking everything soon.

But with 2.0, sure.  We should just start with an empty repository, agree
to use autoconf correctly, and populate things as they become necessary.
