My experience is that autoreconf can copy older files over newer ones.
If you update common files (like config.* and texinfo.tex) via gnulib or
by hand, autoreconf will not necessarily preserve them.  It's not
so simple to fix this problem in autoreconf, unfortunately.

Since autoreconf just runs the other autotools, how is this a problem with autoreconf specifically?
