What I would need is a custom autoconf package, either in Debian
experimental or in a private repo, that would act as a drop-in
replacement for the current autoconf package.

Then I would do two archive rebuilds:
- one with vanilla Debian
- one with vanilla Debian + a script that installs this package (or
configures apt so that this package gets installed)

There are some example scripts in

Do you think that you can work on providing such a package (and a
corresponding script)?
