Is this still a problem?  I just looked in the configure files in
the repostitory and there are no references to AM_MAINTAINER_MODE.

We probably should add automake and autoconf/autoheader.

Note they've been rebuilt with 1.2f, at least that's what I see
when I look at texinfo/Makefile.in

  > The generated Makefile.in (and Makefile) now contain macro definitions
This also appears to be fixed in the current CVS sources.
