 From my point of view, you can go either way. The changes are mostly in 
the build code, except for an include statement. But if the AWT folks 
feel more confident that way, sure, you can go via client.

Just a note: Since you are updating the generated-configure.sh, someone 
with access to the closed sources will need to push a follow-up (the 
same bug number can be used) with an updated version of the closed 
generated-configure.sh. If you go in via the client forest, I'd prefer 
if someone from client did that.
