Yes, but for autoconf and automake, this is a bit different, as
an update is likely to bring in a file generated by the version
you're downloading (e.g. updating your Automake 1.5j CVS tree
brings you a generated by the next snapshot, 1.5k).
So for autotools, not using a bootstrap script is likely to
generate many more conflicts than a 'regular' project.
