Well, perhaps in that case someone could write an that does the
appropriate autoreconf magic. I'm sure I can't be the only one having
trouble with this (and I'm sure it's very obvious if you know how!).

At the risk of looking very stupid:

$ autoreconf
aclocal: couldn't open directory `m4': No such file or directory
$ mkdir m4
$ autoreconf2.50
$ ./configure
config.status: error: cannot find input file: m4/
$ glib-gettextize --force --copy
Please add the files
  codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
$ cp /usr/share/aclocal/{codeset.m4,gettext.m4,glibc21.m4,iconv.m4,isc-posix.m4,lcmessage.m4,progtest.m4} m4
$ aclocal-1.7
$ autoreconf2.50
$ ./configure
config.status: error: cannot find input file: m4/
