Er, there aren't any problems regenerating these as long as you have all
the m4 and I've not heard of any problems with the autotools packages.

Certainly when I prepared the 4.0.3 packages for Debian and had to
update all the auto generated files with a more recent libtool to get it
working on arm it worked fine once you gave me the depends.m4 from CVS
with XFCE_MCS_PLUGINS in it.

If you've got specific problems then http://www.debian.org/Bugs/
