What I plan is to first collect modules list then sort them before
generating Makefile.in's. This way you know all dependencies in advance
(or dependencies loop for that matter).

Sure! That is what configure does. Of course, 2.5x does not cache by
default which means it will rerun the whole configure(s) (unless you
have told it to create cache).

The same. Move it as modules under Modules. It is not in any way

Would it be O.K. to get rid of autoconf 2.13 compatibility?
