Putting it in a makefile variable won't work, because 'make'
would still expand the variable and display the message
before running autoconf.

We could put the message into a separate shell script (which
we could call "not-autogen.sh" say), but that's overkill.
I can think of other, even fancier ways to attack the problem,
but they're all overkill too.

But then the user wouldn't be informed when 'autoconf' runs.
We shouldn't do that.

autogen.sh would be run only when a subset of autogen.sh fails,
so the build failure cannot possibly be irrelevant to autogen.sh.
