Two more things:

(1) Automake's choice of linker:

With the ObjC++ patch the current choice is

C only => CCLD
ObjC (possibly plus C) => OBJCLD
C++ (possibly plus C, ObjC) => CXXLD
ObjC++ (possibly plus c, ObjC, C++) => OBJCXXLD

However, for
C++ plus ObjC (possibly plus C)
should't it actually be OBJCXXLD?

That would be quite awkward to implement (indirectly requiring
AC_PROG_OBJCXX among other things).  Moreover in practice CXXLD and OBJCXXLD
are often the same (both g++), and the user can always enforce the use of
        nodist_EXTRA_*_SOURCES =

What do you think?  Maybe this should be made explicit in the manual.


Another completely unrelated item:

it would be nice if Automake could run gzip and bzip2 (and others) in
parallel when creating the distribution tarballs.  In a parallel make that
could save quite some time when running dist(check) for a largish project.
