Sorry to have given the impression, but what I meant was that I think
it is possible to have almost zero differences in configure.ac and
Makefile.am files; the trees however also store generated files.

For one, I wouldn't know to eliminate the ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS setting used
in gcc/libffi/Makefile.am, leading to differences in the aclocal.m4
file.  And the AM_ENABLE_MULTILIB in configure.ac can easily be made
conditional at the m4 level (i.e., at autoconf run time), but probably
leaves at least some traces if only done at configure run time.

Cheers,
Ralf
