If I have some other reason for needing to touch the configure script,
then sure.  (In fact, I have done just that with several projects.
See what I've had to do to the gcl configure script, for example.)  If
not, I'd rather not spend the small amount of time I can devote to
open source software work messing with a configure script just because
somebody thinks they should be able to run autoreconf with a newer
version of the autotools and get away with it.
