I'm very much in agreement with Greg about autotools.  Anyone 
who's worked extensively with autotools has probably found that 
they have extremely lousy backwards compatibility.  If your 
autotools suite is too old or too new vs. the one used to 
generate a package's scripts, your version may not even be able 
to regenerate the scripts without manual hacking.

Probably the best and simplest solution is remove the offending 
Makefile rules (the ones that regenerate scripts via autotools).
