You shouldn't have to run it explicitly at all. If it makes any
difference after autoreconf, I guess it's a bug.

See `-f'. You supply that if you're hacking config files from a
distribution that might have been built with different versions of any
of the autotools. I'm pretty sure that's all I did (with success) on
Debian and Solaris. (I don't understand why the Debian package
doesn't just do `autoreconf -f', but I'm sure that's just because I
don't understand the packaging requirements properly.)
By the way, are you ensuring that 0.7 is flexible enough not to need
patches for Debian? I might be able to take a look if necessary.
