Okay, thanks Ryan and Josh for clarifying.  I was confused by two 
separate issues which led me to a wrong conclusion.  I can use 
autoreconf though it seems like overkill in this situation.

As for the bug, I was about to ask, as an enhancement request, if the 
logic which expands use_auto{tools} could also determine a unified set 
of dependencies.  Is this reasonable?
