I don't believe you :-)

I've just tried, and autoreconf is not needed for this tarball:

(define-public snappy
    (name "snappy")
    (version "1.1.3")
    (source (origin
              (method url-fetch)
              (uri (string-append
                    version "/" name "-" version ".tar.gz"))
    (build-system gnu-build-system)
    (home-page "";)
    (synopsis "Fast compressor/decompressor")
    (description "Snappy is a compression/decompression library. It does not
aim for maximum compression, or compatibility with any other compression 
instead, it aims for very high speeds and reasonable compression. For instance,
compared to the fastest mode of zlib, Snappy is an order of magnitude faster
for most inputs, but the resulting compressed files are anywhere from 20% to
100% bigger.")
