At least it should be able to call things like `configure' which is a
mandatory step in the build process of packages like AUCTeX and
preview-latex.  During this step the values of some important
variables are determined and written to the package's site
configuration file.  For example XEmacs' package system suffers from
its inability to do that.  AUCTeX users who want to use the package
provided by the XEmacs package system have to do the respective
configuration manually which the configure script does automatically.
