Gah, that's what I get for using a dvorak keyboard, with n and t next to one
another :-)

Did you miss a :-) or is there actually something wrong (other than not
needing your 3.6GHz cpu anymore)?

Another side effect of this patch (aside from not needing to bootstrap
anywhere near as often) is that when you 'make check' the Makefiles in the
test directories will rerun automake et. al. if necessary, so a lot of
the same work needs to be done, only now it happens during make check.

Obviously, if you don't yet have, or Makefiles in the test tree,
you'll still have to bootstrap...
