One more question:

The sample on
Migration also explicitly calls aclocal like this:

aclocal --install || exit 1

But the man page for autoreconf says that autoreconf also calls
aclocal, is this redundant? If so, can it be removed?

I think it can indeed be removed if you're not using any of the other
-ize programs (glib-gettextize, intltoolize, gtkdocize).

Why should it be necessary to call aclocal if you’re using the -ize
programs? All they do is copy files into place, which shouldn’t depend
on any other files (or aclocal.m4) being in place, right?

Giving this a spin with a project which currently uses `aclocal;
intltoolize; autoreconf`, intltoolize seems to need aclocal to create
$srcdir/m4, but nothing else. *facepalm*
