aclocal or acinclude?

In the autoconf manual in Chapter 3, page 5 it states:

... If you write your own feature tests to supplement those that come with Autoconf, you might also write files called ‘aclocal.m4’ and ‘acsite.m4’...

I understand acsite.m4, but I thought aclocal.m4 was *generated* by the aclocal program, not written by the user. I was under the impression that you were supposed to write project-specific macro in a file called acinclude.m4 (which the manual doesn't mention at all).

Most of my education comes from the Goat Book, which I realize is a little out of date. What's the new right way? :)
