What you want is a =tagging-method file that comes arranged for
auto{conf,make} in advance. I have one of those in my ~ someplace. I
thought about distributing it, but rapidly realised that you want
different files depending which tools you use - autoconf is pretty
common, but any of the following can also be used and introduce new
things that you want in the regexps: automake, gettext, libtool,
dejagnu, etc...

What I've been meaning to do is write a little perl script that
generates =tagging-method files based on a set of options. I think
I'll go and do that now, actually.
