First, you execute `builder-configure' which detects the build system,
finds Autotools and asks you to chose between "minimal", "regular",
and others.  Once you've chosen, the minibuffer is filled with the
"minimal" command (for example `../configure --without-threads
--without-toolkit-scroll-bars`.  You press enter, the command is
executed in a compile buffer.

How does Builder determine what is ``minimal'' and what is ``regular'',
given what I assume is M4 trace output from autom4te?

Here "minimal" and "regular" were just placeholder names. They could have been named "random_name1" and "random_name2" for that matter.

It was meant to show that you could define your own targets manually (i.e. a command associated with a name) to conveniently execute them rather than having to rewrite them entirely each time you need them.

I don't know if it's actually possible to determine what is "minimal" and what is "regular" from M4, but if such a thing is possible you could provide a lisp function to Builder that would automatically supply you with the suitable commands.
