Comment:

 It is safer to keep the autoreconf for now. The tarball that the
 maintainer generated initially did not have include some key autotools
 files. (That is the tarball that I have.) Down the line, someone notified
 the maintainer about the missing files and he recreated the tarball with
 the appropriate files but did not change the version number. So there are
 two files floating around the net with the same version number. For folks
 who download the first tarball the command is required, for the second the
 command is superfluous.

 BTW, I came to know of the two different tarballs after I updated the
 book.

 Please comment on how the book should be updated.
