Yes, of course. 

Software doesn't get built from source by magic. Either people
to this completely by hand or we have a good buildsystem which
does this automatically.

For me as a distributor/firmware vendor and maintainer of hundreds 
of different systems, it is absolutely important that the build
process is *reliable* - without manual interaction. Tons of features
are quite uninteresting. And they're almost irrelevant if the 
principle things are unreliable.
Autoconf is not able to provide this.

So such an buildsystem *will* make apache httpd better, and thousands 
of other projects currently still hacking w/ autoconf too.
