Can (should) SUBDIRS contain conditionals? Is automake smart to know
that MAYBEDOCS must be entered not for install but for "make dist" and
"clean" etc?

We have a somewhat similar situation here, depending on hostplatform
installation differs and we are using recursive configures
(AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS). Even if documentation is wanted then probably not
of all but just of one package etc.
We usually have some special "install and zip" targets. We
cross-compile for the whatever target (on linux), install to a temp
directory below cwd:

$(ZIPNAME).zip: Makefile
        rm -f $(ZIPNAME).zip
        rm -rf $(ZIPNAME)
        $(MAKE) prefix="" DESTDIR=`pwd`/$(ZIPNAME) install
        zip -r "$(ZIPNAME).zip" $(ZIPNAME)
        test -e $(ZIPNAME).zip
        rm -rf $(ZIPNAME)

and sometimes even delete from the install dir before calling zip.

I guess there are better ways to do so?
