1) We don't use automake; the only autotool we do use is autoconf.

2) Whatever content you accumulate in *your* local autom4te.cache is specific to the results of configure tests on *your* system *alone*; it is almost certain to be inappropriate for *mine*. By committing this cache content to CVS, you are effectively asserting that no one but you, or those with systems identically configured as yours, should be able to build CVS groff.

Sure, you may keep your autom4te.cache around, for you own future use, but please don't "queer the pitch" for others, by polluting CVS with this local host specific data.
