This is a standard automake macro.
Basically the intent is that if you pass --enable-maintainer-mode, the
generated makefiles will have rules to rebuild Makefile.in from
Makefile.am, and configure from configure.ac, so that if you change
those files they will take effect. If you don't pass
--enable-maintainer-mode, the generated makefile won't track the auto*
files dependencies or rebuild them. If you have automake
etc. installed, and want to make changes like that, then it's good to
enable it. If you are just trying to build the distributed code, you
don't need to enable it.
