Thank you, Ralf and Mike Frysinger,

I looked into the top level Makefile:

aclocal_DATA = config/ag_macros.m4 config/extensions.m4 config/libopts.m4 \
config/liboptschk.m4 config/snprintfv.m4 config/unlocked-io.m4

Looks like I confused "DIST" with "DATA" and I missed it.
I wrote the original line many years ago and tweaked it inappropriately.
Thank you.  Everything is better now.

Only automake complains.  The texi tools are happy.
The automake macros make the erroneous assumption that all texi
docs are hand crafted and must, perforce, have the layout that
the macros expect -- even if the tools do not have such a
requirement.  It has been some years since I jiggered this around,
but I'll figure out how to migrate the @setfilename line from
the agdoc.texi file into autogen.texi.  Thank you.
