Auto-stuff patching

Dear all,

I have recently stumbled against a couple of packages which needed
patching the auto-stuff (,, m4 macros etc.)
I have solved the problem by using the makebuilddir target and invoking
the needed auto-stuff there.
I was wondering if there is a preferred or more elegant way to solve
this problem?
I have seen mentions of things like DEB_AUTO_UPDATE_ACLOCAL and friends
but unfortunately I can't find any reference which explains these to
some detail.

Anybody has any tips?



Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you
put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying
"End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH," the paint wouldn't even
have time to dry.
