I'm no expert on autoconf etc. but shouldn't item 4 in
make-tarball.txt recommend removing src/config.in before make
bootstrap (or perhaps to run autoheader manually)?

And shouldn't item 5 recommend to commit it?

I noticed this because I was looking for instructions for changing
configure.in, i.e. what files to regenerate (and how to do that) and
commit back to CVS.

I suppose (read: guess) the proper steps are:

        edit configure.in
        rm -f configure src/config.in config.status
        make bootstrap
        [test that it works]
        commit configure.in configure src/config.in

Maybe we could add such guidelines to admin/README.
