Correct.  I followed that practice of the previous committers to the
trees.  It has both advantages and disadvantages.  You listed a
disadvantage.  An advantage is that we can easily tell people: ``Get the
`gnumach-1-branch' from cvs and compile that one.'' without having to
worry if they have suitable versions of the Auto* tools installed.  I
don't know if that is really a strong argument, though.

I don't have a general objection against changing that practice.

What are others's opinions?
