Normally it would work just fine (we do this all the time), but
looking closer at it, the Makefile.autotools.in stuff is horribly
broken as it doesn't have proper dependencies listed.

It also looks like it would break badly for parallel builds (-j)


 John> Build failure. I would suggest a revert on dbus.mk.

I'll revert the libxml2 hunk. We really need to fixup the autotools
stuff or stop using it.
