The reason autoreconf runs autoconf before autoheader is that the former
typically gives better error messages than the latter.  autoheader
before automake helps avoid a message from automake about missing

If autoreconf doesn't work for some project, then we'd like to know why,
so we can fix it.  It really should be used.
