The `' scripts in the gnome-* dirs do work with 
srcdir != builddir.  The ones with glib/gtk+ don't.  I haven't looked at 
the others.  Here's an excerpt for gnome-libs/HACKING:

  There is a simple script ( on the root directory that does
  all of this for you.  Just run this script with any arguments that you
  want to pass to configure.  If you like to build in a directory
  different from the source, you can run `<path-to-src-dir>/'
  in the build directory.

Anyway, I rarely use the `' scripts.  I run aclocal/
automake/autoconf manually, and --enable-maintainer-mode usually takes
care of the rest.  I just need to manually run automake and
config.status once in a while to fix newly added/deleted directories.
