Update generated configuration files
autoreconf [OPTION] ... [TEMPLATE-FILE]
Run `autoconf' (and `autoheader', `aclocal' and `automake', where appropriate) repeatedly to remake the Autoconf `configure' scripts and configuration header templates in the directory tree rooted at the current directory. By default, it only remakes those files that are older than their predecessors. If you install a new version of Autoconf, running `autoreconf' remakes all of the files by giving it the `--force' option.

Unless specified, heuristics try to compute `M4DIR' from the `Makefile.am', or defaults to `m4' if it exists.
