Update dh_auto documentation.
* dh_auto.pod -> dh_auto.7 - contains general information about dh_auto, its features, build systems supported by default (the latter is injected by man/dh_auto_pod script from Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/*.pm PODs via placeholders (#PLACEHOLDER#)) * POD in Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/*.pm -> dh_auto_<buildsystem>.7 - build system specific information. * dh_auto_* -> dh_auto_*.1 - relatively shorty description of the specific dh_auto_* program and build system specific info for that step injected from Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/*.pm with man/dh_auto_pod script. * man/dh_auto_pod $step - generates full dh_auto_$step POD (replaces placeholders). * man/dh_auto_pod - generates full dh_auto.pod (replaces placeholders).

+=head1 NAME
+
+B<autoconf> - GNU Autoconf (configure)
+
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+
+B<dh_auto_*> [B<--buildsystem>=I<autoconf>] ...
+
+=head1 DESCRIPTION
+
+GNU Autoconf is a popular cross-platform build system. Autoconf F<configure>
+script prepares the source for building and generates necessary F<Makefile>s
+and other temporary files in the build directory. Then a standard set of
+make targets needs to be executed in the build directory to complete source
+build process. GNU Autoconf build system can be typically identified by
+presence of the F<configure> script in the source directory.
+
+=head1 DH_AUTO NOTES
+
+Both in source (default) and out of source tree building modes are supported.
+However, please note that some original source packages might not be compatible
+with out of source tree building mode of Autoconf and hence build process may
+fail later even if the I<configure> step succeeds.
