Assuming the `make' part is solved by install.el or elmake, we "only"
need an Elisp-based substitute for `configure'.  If a package like
AUCTeX doesn't provide it, one has to require external tools.  I don't
see a problem here.  The point is that the package system should be
able to support `configure'.
