Right... autoreconf does aclocal, autoconf, and automake all in one 
shot.  That makes sense.

About adding automake to the toplevel Makefile, where should that go? 
It seems like adding it to 'default' or similar will break the 
non-autotool builds.  Doing that so close before a release seems mean. 
Since the automake business is only necessary for 'make check', would 
putting it in the 'check' target be sufficient?

(I think my autotool ignorance is showing.)
