What about the small one I mailed earlier? The autogen.sh files of Gnome
etc. have lots of additional features (automake version checks etc), but I
believe in "KISS", and this minimal autogen.sh usually does the job. And if
it doesn't, the user will notice soon enough... But if you want some
additional features in the script, I can easily add them for you.

Oh yes, I hate that too! (Which is why my example doesn't do it. ;) With 
some of them, you can set the environment var "NOCONFIGURE" or similar to 
prevent it.
