Re: [opensuse-buildservice] autotools source service.

Of the long list of things I dislike about auto tools this issue is
probably right at the top.

Just dont ship any autogenerated files. The approach to force every pkg
to include a configure script was probably valid 40 years ago. Its
obsolete since many many years.

I'm sure Enlightment (like any other software project) has a list of
buildtime dependencies. Having autoconf/automake in that list is the
right thing and comes with no price. Update the docs to refer to
autogen.sh rather than configure.
