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).
