Enable automake maintainer mode for development
In maintainer mode, whenever a file managed by autoconf or automake is changed it is regenerated on the fly. For Makefile.am files this also applies to any fragment .am file referenced by the include directive. The configure script disables the maintainer mode by default, which is probably a sane behavior because downstream usage of dist archives don't need the various autotools to be present, unless a Makefile or similar is patched. This is explicitly enabled by the autogen.des script, in order to make this change only impact development, saving most of the time a configure step after amending something in the build. Refs #3184
