Needs a volunteer to talk to the Yocto people, learn why they wanted this feature, and work out whether it's possible to make autoreconf smart enough that it's not needed.

Adds an exclude option to autoreconf to skip some steps. Patch file is lacking contextual information.

Comments from Zack W.

> Do file a bug so this doesn’t get lost, but don't spend too much time on researching it.  I’m not sure we want the new feature that it adds; autoreconf is supposed to be smart enough to know when each tool should or shouldn’t be run, and not need this kind of override.  We’d want to know why that’s infeasible.  If we did decide to take the patch, we would want more documentation.  In any case, new features should wait for after 2.70.
