CPython stores auto-generated autoconf files (configure, aclocal.m4, in git. The files must be regenerated with very specific versions of autotools 2.69 + runtimestate patch, autoarchive, and pkg-config's m4 macros. I provide a container image based on Alpine 3.13 for automation and CI.

Let's add a build target to make it easier for contributors to regenerate the files and utilize the container images. The command needs a container runtime (podman, docker), though.
