I did a random sampling of 5 packages that use and all
of them contained benign sequences of aclocal, autoconf, automake.
The only thing they tend to customize is the m4 include path.

Thus, I propose the logic shoud run "${CONFIG_SHELL}" if
${WRKSRC}/ exist, with fallback to "autoreconf -if".

In situations where that doesn't work, those packages can be left as-is.

Kind regards,
