Some points that could be made better:
1. Get rid of configure options that should not be used,
and are only useful for make distcheck. I think it
may be one case where AC_SUBST() can have an
important role in the proper solution?
2. Replace most gratuitous AC_SUBST(VAR) by usage
of $(VAR) in the Makefile.am's. It not only allows
using "%make VAR=someval", but also has the
benefit of a cleaner configure.ac.
3. In video drivers configure.ac's, there is a lot of
tests in the format:
Maybe, xorg-macros should be extended, to have
macros, and similar? To avoid too much cut&paste,
and slightly different variants for every driver.
4. Have a global autogen.sh, provided by what? xorg-macros?
