Site defaults should be independent of the package being installed.
I do not believe it would be wise for me to document how to translate

be appropriate to state the our configure script is autoconf 

See 'Setting Site Defaults' section in the autoconf manual for
setting site and machine defaults for autoconf generated configuration
