Yeah.  Actually I just changed it to use AM_AUX_DIR_EXPAND.

I have an updated patch which includes your patch.
I'm running a full check on it now.

Yeah.  I find this ugly.  I'm actually not too happy with how missing
is working these days.  It sometimes covers up real problems.  There's
a bug report about that on the main list that I haven't looked at yet.
(Plus there was the `makeinfo' thing from a few weeks ago.)
