For the record -- automake-generated Makefiles contain rules to rerun
the bits of autofoo that are required whenever the source files change.
So if you edit Makefile.am, it'll rerun at least automake and
config.status; if you edit Makefile.in, it'll rerun config.status, and
if you edit configure.ac (or the older name, configure.in), it'll rerun
at least autoconf, and presumably also its ./configure output.

But it does it when you try to make, not when you ./configure (IIRC).
You also need the right versions of the autotools stuff, of course, or
the autofoo programs fail.

(Also not sure if kbd uses automake or not.)
