I'd at least maintain same style through out all files.

Yeah, but not indenting body of the function at all is always a bad idea.

It seems complicated in the begging but actually it's pretty simple. 
Years of developing and maintaining several projects (vtun.sf.net, bluez.sf.net,etc) made me autoconf fan :))

Ok. I'll see if I have time for that.

I wouldn't say that it sucks. Sometimes it does a good job. 
However I don't use it much in my own projects.
