don't know the official position, but i made a file in my CVS that's called

and that does:
libtoolize -c --automake
automake -a -c

so when creating a release, i do ./ and make dist

i think you have to see it this way
the configure, libtool, ... scripts are scripts that make installation easier 
on whatever platform, and you can not depend on users actually having 
installed automake and autoconf, so that's why they are copied...
