The Makefile (at least on GNU/Linux) actually calls autotools through
autogen.sh and not directly.  And since that is so, whether or not I
call it by hand or through the Makefile doesn't change the fact that
after an upgrade of autotools on your system or if you've somehow edited
or damaged those files you'll end up with stale files in build-aux that
may or may not work correctly.

It may not be appropriate to unconditionally replace these files each
times autoreconf is run, but there should be at least an option for
autogen.sh to do this.
