I have already done this for the next teTeX-pretest which will have
Olaf's latest web2c pretest.

Some programs need libm and Olaf has moved it into a configure-check, so
it only gets in via
in Makefile.in if configure checks for it, i.e. if configure.in has
  AC_CHECK_LIB(m, main)

I had to add this to a few configure.in files below texk. But, all in all,
switching to the latest web2c was really painless...

The new xdvik seems to be harder. I think that "include" in Makefiles
is not portable:
  ./libs/t1lib/lib/type1/Makefile.in:include .dependencies
  ./libs/t1lib/lib/t1lib/Makefile.in:include .dependencies
  ./libs/t1lib/type1afm/Makefile.in:include .dependencies
  ./libs/t1lib/xglyph/Makefile.in:include .dependencies
  ./libs/t1lib/examples/Makefile.in:include .dependencies
In addition, one cannot compile xdvik outside the source dir,
i.e. the following fails:

  mkdir build; cd build
  ../xdvik-22.40e/configure; make

In short: the Makefiles need some work...
