Yes I need to investigate on this

yes this could work but it is really a nasty hack...

You mean , I need to maintain a fork of autoconf for this project ;)
To me even if this is slower, the right fix is to avoid removing core if this 
is a directory.
It will be difficult for me to convince upstream to use autoconf if it needs to 
change it's
code due to this bug.
