This is unfortunately not always the case. dh-autoreconf won't update
config.{sub,guess} if automake or libtool are not being used, as discussed
in Debian Bug #698765
<https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=698765>. A telltale sign
that it won't update config.{sub,guess}, at least in my experience, is when
there is no call to "AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE" in configure.{ac,in}.

Just a slight caveat. :)
