Looking closer, I fully agree!
sugar-toolkit-0.88 approach is for *optionally* recreating autotools and
then ficating as a patch. That approach won't even work with source
format 3.0 due to patches being applied in less controllable order
(autotools are quite picky about timestamps).
Thanks for spotting it, Felipe. I must drop those routines from
sugar-toolkit-* (they are unneeded currently anyway).
kannel-sqlbox, on the other hand, is relatively recently packaged from
scratch, so should be sane :-)
