JFTR, from the description of dh-autoreconf:

 For CDBS users, a rule is provided to call the dh-autoreconf programs
 at the right time.

The rule itself is pretty simple:

$ cat /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/autoreconf.mk 
# autoreconf.mk - dh-autoreconf integration for CDBS.

        dh_autoreconf $(DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_ARGS)

        dh_autoreconf_clean $(DEB_DH_AUTORECONF_CLEAN_ARGS)

But, as I said before, it doesn't work nicely. Could still be me, though. ;)
