Much as I hate to prolong the life of autotools I agree. The build system isn't 
a feature as far as users of the release are concerned so it doesn't add value 
to the release. The "sigh of relief" after the release will be a good time to 
make the change, people will be much more tolerant of build breaks and much more 
available to help iron out problems.
