Eventually, yes.  Right now, I'm working on removing all direct 
dependencies onto autoconf/automake/libtool, in preference to using the 
various knobs.

Once that's done, I'll be looking for additional feature requests for 
the infrastructure, and alongside that, working with port maintainers 
to get their ports up to the latest and greatest versions of the 
autotools code.

Patches welcome.  See for the
current planned version after ports/63571 has been committed.
