sorry, i missed the -r.  this begs the question of why are you
patching configure.ac at all then if you try and prevent autotools
from running.  any changes made to configure.ac wont be reflected in
configure and other files if autoconf/etc... arent run.

the vague description sounds like autotool problems and you should be
using autoreconf.
