I'd looked at that, so thanks for the confirmation.  If I set the SUBST_STAGE 
to pre-configure will it happen at the very beginning of pre-configure, or 
should I trigger it on post-wrapper instead?

Since this particular case is to run a customized autoconf/automake script 
supplied by the authors, maybe there should be a standard "autostuff" phase for 
these actions rather than putting them into pre-configure when needed.  By 
default NO_AUTOSTUFF would be "yes".  This would preserve the pre-phase, phase, 
post-phase symmetry, instead of adding pre-pre-pre-phase oddities for some and 
not for others.
