On arriving at sodipodi in jhbuild I was greeted with this:

(snip a whole bunch of good ideas from output)

Please run 'automake m4/Makefile' to create m4/

Please run 'aclocal -I m4' to regenerate the aclocal.m4 file.
You need aclocal from GNU automake 1.5 (or newer) to do this.
Then run 'autoconf' to regenerate the configure file.

You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from

It is my belief that should be completely uninteractive and not 
wait for keyboard input.  Especially in jhbuild, this is just lethal.  
Imagine how long it would take you to actually get a full jhbuild done if 
you had to press Enter a few times for every module.

Does anyone know why sodipodi, and possibly others, do this ? Is it a good 
or bad idea to do so ?
