Description Adrian Perez 2017-08-30 05:29:03 PDT
Many <autotools> modules in the GTK+ internal JHBuild will run
“autogen.sh” to regenerate build files from the Autotools sources.
Running it is *not* needed for modules built from packaged releases
because those already include all the needed files.

Running Autotools involved running slow Perl scripts and the M4
macro processor. By pointing modules to the “configure” script
directly, time would be saved when building the dependencies in
the internal JHBuild.
