Would you mind updating the wiki page to match your suggestions?

But I guess libtoolize is wrong.

Probably also makes sense to update

which is a separate, though related, goal.

We should also remove mention of AX_REQUIRE_DEFINED([APPDATA_XML])
since APPDATA_XML is obsoleted by APPSTREAM_XML.

I guess aclocal --install and autoreconf --install are redundant, and
we just need to run aclocal first because we run glib-gettextize,
intltoolize, and gtkdocize before autoreconf? Moving autoreconf to the
top of the  allows me to drop use of aclocal from my
