I am thinking of making AUTOMAKE_OVERRIDE default to "YES" in
This triggers the target that touches all of the existing and files so that the GNU auto* tools won't be invoked during a
"make build".  I think this is the correct behaviour for pkgsrc because
when packages do need autoconf/automake, they call them on their own as
part of a pre-configure target.  Can anyone see any problem with this, or
does anyone know of a package they maintain that relies on "make build" to
call the GNU auto* tools?
