I've actually been a bit confused by the notion of having separate autoconf
installations/invocation in multiple subdirectories. The point of that would
seem to be that if you just want to reconfigure and rebuild one particular
part, you can do it.

But who ever does that?

It seems to me that everyone only ever wants a single autoconf instance for
the whole tree, which can generate all the subdirectory makefiles.
