I'm not sure this is really useful, I would just let modules do their
own thing. For example metacity has --enable-verbose and so forth.

But if it is useful, again it belongs in autoconf.

I agree you should able to select your autoconf/automake version.
(Not that it does us any good until someone fixes scrollkeeper/etc. 
rules to pass distcheck with new automake)

I'm inclined to can gnome-common entirely and move
somewhere else such as pkgconfig or glib. Really it should just be
part of "autoreconf" but autoreconf isn't quite right for us.
(Since the use of glib-gettextize is part of the reason why, perhaps 
glib-reconf is the way)
