First, it is proof of concept patch, the concept being having autoconf
dependency _only_ in rpm target.

Second, it should be "Source1: autoconf-configure.tar.gz" or something like
that. Using "Patch0:" was an ugly hack.

That to say RPM builders use "PatchN:" for patches which didn't made
upstream; perhaps they make sources more compatibile with distribution RPM
is prepared for.
