Even then there should be no reason to run "autoconf" by hand.

Hmm, perhaps this scenario happened?

A. Somebody committed "configure.in" without
  also committing the corresponding "configure" etc. files.

B. You did a "bzr up", and then ran "configure" without
  "--enable-maintainer-mode", as shown above.

(A) happened in bzr 103411, which was around the time that
you reported the issue, so that might explain things.

Is it normal to commit configure.in without also committing
the corresponding changes to 'configure'?  That can cause
confusion, as it can cause a bzr checkout to be inconsistent
and unbuildable.  "configure --enable-maintainer-mode" works
around some of these problems, but not all, I expect.
