First, I make the latest version of some utilities
available for legacy
products (as ancient as SLE10), because they can be quite useful on
those systems (e.g. kdumpid for getting the crashed kernel version from
a dump file). However, these legacy distributions contain ancient
versions of GNU autotools and friends, so autoreconf does not work
properly when building for those targets (missing features, bugs).
The scripts included in the upstream tarball are definitely better. Is
it OK if I do _not_ run autoreconf in the specfile?
It is not only OK, but even preferred not to run autoreconf, as long as
there is no problem with the included configure script.
