Heh.... Autoconf/automake are positively restrained and minimalist
compared to gnulib!  [Which creates vast quantities of fileĊŸ with no
particular pattern, some of which are source files (and so must be
included in the project), others of which are dev/build-time
trash... even writing a .gitignore file for a gnulib'd project is
a hugely fiddly and frustrating exercise...]
