Let's test it.

If you could write a patch to replace our current configure script with
something based on autoconf, then I'll be glad to try it out and see
what I think.

If there are any differences that I find annoying, then we can see which
of those we can work around or get fixed in upstream autoconf.

I'm definitely open to exploration in this area.

Hate is one emotion that I do my best to avoid. But I am quite glad to
have found no compelling reason to use either automake or libtool so
far in notmuch. :-)
