Various reasons.  Like applying a patch from CVS that touchs a
Makefile.am.  Or some difference between redhat and debian requires an
extra flag be added somewhere.  Yeah, I could just hack on the
Makefile.ins or the generated configure script but that is no fun.

sigh... i thought this was going to just be a minor fix and no one would
notice. ;)
