autoconf/autoheader required in some cases


If, say, you don't use the `touch' script, and you don't have autoconf or
autoheader installed at all, the Makefiles will attempt to run autoconf and
autoheader anyway.

I've seen a plethora of GNU pkgs that have _checked_for_ the presence of
autoconf and autoheader before using them.  Wouldn't it be possible, and
maybe even trivial, to add such checks to egcs's configure.in scripts?
