Didn't work for me when I tried, plus I would like to avoid the (slow,
messy) configure step if I can. I can't complain (though I did) if the
authors of vm-tools feel the need to use autoconf, but I would be
against it spreading to the rest of the xen tools.

Btw, Freshmeat has an editorial about the problems with make and
make-derived tools, at http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/1702/
