I have a project with several developers, and we keep the
and the configure checked in, but we are moving towards only having checked in.

In general there will be on developer taking the lead on configuration
and make files. He or she will want the latest autotools. Also, he or
she should be the one to generate distributions.

Other developers may not need to stay up with the latest autotools
versions. Unless they decide they need to edit the configuration files
to support some change. This happens with some frequency, so many
developers will have to keep up with autotools versions anyway.

Since that's already the case for us, we are going to stop putting
configure and Makefile(s) in the repository.

Good luck!
