Well that document is Autotools-specific.

The build API is basically a subset of the GNU Coding Standards:

(see chapter 7 The Release Process)

For downstreams, as Michael Biebl already said, it's much easier if all
modules can be built the same way. GNU has written a standard, but new
build systems don't follow it…

The GNU Coding Standards (GCS) has several decades of experience, the
standards are well established, and we can trust the GNU hackers for
having well conceived them. Those that don't follow them are devoted to
reinvent the wheel: they will be faced sooner or later by the same
problems already solved by the GCS and the Autotools.
