I don't like maintainer mode either, but only because I'm really a
packager, not a maintaner. As a packager, I like the fact that GNU packages
may be built by "./configure; make; make install" without the need of
automake, autoconf, or anything like that.

If you need mantainer mode to generate files which have proper timestamps,
enable maintainer mode. Just remember to switch it off before making
a spanshot tarball, or before making the final release.

Thanks for the tip.  I will do this when I get a chance (hopefully in
the next day or two) and then send out a new pre-test with that change
and the two other changes you mentioned (add "#include <string.h>" and
remove README-alpha dependency).
