Remove maintainer mode
To quote from automake manual : Several years ago François Pinard pointed out several arguments against this AM_MAINTAINER_MODE macro. Most of them relate to insecurity. By removing dependencies you get non-dependable builds: changes to sources files can have no effect on generated files and this can be very confusing when unnoticed. He adds that security shouldn't be reserved to maintainers (what --enable-maintainer-mode suggests), on the contrary. If one user has to modify a Makefile.am, then either Makefile.in should be updated or a warning should be output (this is what Automake uses missing for) but the last thing you want is that nothing happens and the user doesn't notice it (this is what happens when rebuild rules are disabled by AM_MAINTAINER_MODE).  http://www.gnu.org/savannah-checkouts/gnu/automake/manual/html_node/maintainer_002dmode.html
