how to patch configure.ac and not require autotools



Hello,

I need to patch configure.ac so it doesn't explicitely add '-s' to
LDFLAGS (see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=194782). From a
discussion started in
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-list/2005-October/msg01545.html it is forbidden to use autotools during the build process and it suggests to patch configure and the other generated files too. But in my situation the only files that differ are configure.ac and configure. And after applying the patch their timestamps are set to the current time and because other files (Makefile.am, config.h, ...) depend on them, they want to be regenerated. The whole package seem buildable without the autotools, but with some not very nice messages about missing automake, autoconf, etc in the buildlog.
I see 3 possible ways
- leave the warnings in the buildlog
- patch the files without modifying their timestamp (but is it
possible?)
- generate a patch that will contain empty patches for the other
generated files only to update their timestamp (but again how?)
