Re: Running (was: Re: elinks upgrade request)

In 99% of cases this is fine, and recommended for newer autoconf:

	cd ${WRKSRC} && autoreconf -fi

Some times an (especially legacy) package might need a little extra,
so you might need to run, then you might need an environment
variable to stop it from running ./configure on its own, then there's
the question to use ${CONFIG_SHELL}, ${SH}, or sh (autogen is nearly
always a trivial script)...

I don't think this matters much. Most packages don't need special casing
and the required makefile bits are tiny. Those that do need special casing
might not benefit from a central variable anyway...
