As several people have noticed, this tarballs is missing some of
the standard buildsystem bits, such that you need to run autoreconf
before ./configure. This is partly my fault for driving the release
script incorrectly, and mostly autotools' fault for being sheer
garbage. (Seriously, dear gnu project, please sunset autotools. It is a
net loss to humanity at this point.)

Once I beat the release tools into submission I'll upload 1.19.3 with
otherwise the same content. Sorry for the mess.
