I think it's a bug that you get a cache directory with the Autoconf
version included.  It make no sense to version this directory.
It should be named `autom4te.cache' everywhere, precisely so that
it can be removed easily.

This option is already supported by all these tools.
It's spelled `; rm -rf autom4te.cache'.
