Well, if you're doing CMake then you'll want to use whatever CMake uses to
generate config.h. platforms/unix/conf/configure runs automake.

Even if configure was generated by automake its input files (configure.in
et al) were not ;-)
One could see that inputs to CMake are hand-written as an advantage of
CMake, it getting one further in each step. autoconf's generating
configure is problematic, configure itself needing to be generated on the
right system (generating it on Mac OS X for example produces a completely
