That is why in your spec file you are running 'autoconf'.  If you
will pass relevant options it will even run a proper 'configure'
step for you.  'man autoconf' says:

   autoconf - Generate configuration scripts

and where possible options to libtoolize, which depend on a version,
are coming into play.  If you are getting a distribution archive,
where these scripts were "pre-generated" for you, you may go
straight to ./configure although you risk then some "version drift".

There is also something like 'man autoreconf'.

Yes, I agree that all these autoconfiguration tools are sometimes a
major PITA.


P.S.  A spec file which I was using myself with librep for 0.17.2
starts its %build section like this:

mkdir -p m4
./ --with-readline --enable-shared --disable-rpath --libexecdir=%{_lib

where "--disable-rpath" is likely not doing anything useful nowadays but
I just did not check that really.
