The whole point of having separate tags like we do is so that the item
in the tag is identical to the package. That said, if it does not
build, that is a problem.

If this patch only touches autoconf files and the build ends up nearly
identical to the existing package (please confirm file sizes, at
least), I guess it'd be ok in this specific case.

We shouldn't make a habit of this, however
