Since there has been no new tarball release since this bug was opened, I consider that is still not fixed. So I'd prefer to keep it open.

@Carne: Do we need to keep this bug report open?

Got it. I'll try to keep that in mind, and in the future will request maintainers to include the configure.ac files when making new package releases.

I'm sure there may be other packages that don't include it.

In the tarball for msh, the configure script under src/ does not come with its source file (the generated configure script is not the preferred form of modification, hence it is not source code).

Please therefore include src/configure.ac (which is in SVN) in the tarballs of future release.
