According to the archives, it was brought up a couple times around the
1999-2000 time frame, but no one ever made a case that it'd be worth the
pain of changing over. At the time, we had subprojects in the tree with
their own configure/build systems (odbc, libpqxx) and I think
automake-ification was considered a way to try to clean that situation
up. But now it's been resolved by kicking the subprojects out again,
and so I don't really see that automake has much to offer us.
